A Position Paper.
Hixson, Richard A.
This position paper covers possible problems of collective bargaining. (1) The two sides should not bring prejudgments of good or bad to the negotiating table. (2) Neither side should exaggerate its strength or minimize its weakness. (3) Neither side should confuse intransigence with firmness. (4) The composition of each team must be carefully considered to be sure the most competent negotiator is chosen. (5) The use of outside specialists should not be scorned. (6) Each team must have real authority to speak for its side, as well as the full confidence of those it represents. (7) Contract terms should be realistic, not timid or excessive, and should have the welfare of the whole community in mind. (8) The timing, scheduling, place of meetings, and agenda should be agreeable to both sides. (HH)
