Strategic Negotiations identifies three fundamental negotiating strategies that are being used to effect changes in labor-management relations. The first, called forcing, involves making labor accept unwanted substantive terms while simultaneously reducing the union's influence in the workplace. This strategy carries severe risks, including uncontrolled escalation, defeat, and a legacy of intergroup distrust. In contrast, the second strategy of fostering emphasizes finding solutions to common problems and building trust and consensus between the parties. A major risk with fostering is that difficult problems may not be addressed for fear of straining the new relationship. The third strategy, escape, entails withdrawing from the negotiating relationship altogether by physically transferring operations to another location

"The deeply personal story of a historic time in Chicago, Robert B. McKersie's A Decisive Decade follows the unfolding action of the Civil Rights Movement as it played out in the Windy City. McKersie's participation as a white activist for black rights offers a unique, firsthand viewpoint on the debates, boycotts, marches, and negotiations that would forever change the face of race relations in Chicago and the United States at large. Described within are McKersie's intimate observations on events as they developed during his participation in such historic occasions as the impassioned marches for open housing in Chicago; the campaign to end school segregation under Chicago Schools Superintendent Benjamin Willis; Operation Breadbasket's push to develop economic opportunities for black citizens; and dialogs with corporations to provide more jobs for blacks in Chicago. In addition, McKersie provides up close and personal descriptions of the iconic Civil Rights leaders who spearheaded some of the most formative battles of Chicago's Civil Rights Movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Reverend Jesse Jackson, Timuel Black Jr. and W. Alvin Pitcher. The author illumines the tensions experienced by two major institutions in responding to the demands of the Civil Rights Movement: the university and the church. Packed with historical detail and personal anecdotes of these history-making years, A Decisive Decade offers a never-before-seen perspective on one of our nations most tumultuous eras."--Publisher information
