Union and Management

Imagine you are a Union International representative attempting to resolve a grievance in your organization. The grievance was filed by an employee who is challenging a disciplinary action given by management. You are working with the local members and your legal counsel to decide if the grievance must go to arbitration or not.

Consider both sides of this issue: union and management. Make a recommendation for MANAGEMENT to present to their respective organization that is supported by the facts in the case, previous arbitrator's decisions, the cost and benefits of the final award, and the risks associated with the decision.

Prepare a 500 word summary based on your findings. In your summary, keep in mind that this case involves applications of the disciplinary system. The team must discuss the significance of an effective disciplinary system and how it affects the outcome of this grievance. Additionally, the team must decide the best possible outcome and defend its conclusion.

NOTE: you can make up the details of the discipline case or just provide what factors would influence your decision.

Format your paper according to APA standards.
