OMM 618 Week 5 DQ 1 Contract Negotiations
This pack of OMM 618 Week 5 Discussion Question 1 Contract Negotiations shows the solutions to the following points:
The producers said the WGA was not bargaining in good faith. What did they mean by that, and do you think the evidence is sufficient to support the claim?
The WGA did eventually strike. What tactics could the producers have used to fight back once the strike began? What tactics do you think the WGA used?
This was a conflict between professional and creative people (the WGA) and TV and movie producers. Do you think the conflict was therefore different in any way than are the conflicts between, say, the auto workers or Teamsters unions against auto and trucking companies? Why?
What role (with examples, please) did negotiating skills seem to play in the WGA-producers negotiations?
