Next, you will choose a minimum of three of the following five issues. As you read these chapters, you will come up with
eight to ten questions per unit assignment to ask the company. These questions should be approved by the professor
prior to the interview. Once they are approved, you will contact the company representative(s) and interview them
regarding the questions. You can do this in person, by phone, or if needed, by email. For each assignment, you will write
a minimum two-page paper encompassing the results of your findings. The first paper will be due in Unit VI, the second
paper will be due in Unit VII, and the last one will be due in Unit VIII.
Here are the topics to choose from:
• Unit IV: At the Bargaining Table
• Unit V: Grievances and Arbitration
• Unit VI: Wage Issues and Economic Supplements
• Unit VII: Institutional Issues
• Unit VIII: Administrative Issues
You are encouraged to submit your paper for each unit assignment as soon as possible in order to get the professor’s
feedback. You can gain a better idea of the paper by working on it as soon as you finish studying each topic.
If at any time you need assistance, please contact the professor for guidance.
