Disputes in the Workplace: Management vs. Labor. Instructor's Guide [and] Student Materials. Business Issues in the Classroom. Revised.
Maxey, Phyllis F.; Kraemer, Karen D.
One of a series of units designed to help secondary students understand business issues, this packet focuses on the role of organized labor in the business world. Teacher and student materials are provided in two separate sections. The teacher's guide contains five detailed lesson plans, suggestions for follow-up activities, definitions of important terms, background readings and handouts for a student simulation. Following an introductory reading on disputes in the workplace, the student materials include a preassessment survey of economic knowledge, a simulation based on the J. P. Stevens labor dispute, and readings on labor history, collective bargaining, business techniques for dealing with the unions, and innovative labor relations in American, Swedish, and Japanese automobile industries. A vocabulary worksheet reviews major terms introduced in the unit. (LP)
