Collective Behavior

...Collective Behavior Spontaneous Collective Behavior 1- Watching a confrontation between two people in a public place while the crowd signals to people around them and tape what is going on. My husband and I were vacationing in a foreign country when we witnessed a physical altercation between two people. When two men began to fight in public, bystanders were immediately responsive to the situation. The first act of many was to call the police and report the details of what was going on. Others, possibly seeing that the incident had already been reported or possibly not caring, rushed to get closer the men. Many were armed with video recording devices which they used to capture the details of the match. A crowd gathered around as the police arrived and the paramedics attempted to reach the injured and treat their wounds after one of the person involved in the fight shot the other one. My husband and I ran away when we heard the gun shot but we could still see how the crowd reacted to the event in the distance. The police officers and the paramedics tried to keep the people away from the scene but a lot of people remained close to the site and tried to tape the events with their electronic devices. We felt very worried and scared after this event and even tried to change the dates of our trip to return earlier. 2- Founding out that my grandfather had passed away. Discovering that my Grandfather had passed away was......

The List

...The List Story by 10/16/2013 I find myself on the ledge of a building with two of his thugs grabbing me. I think to myself how did I get here? Should I have done what I did? Is this the end? I should start from the beginning. I grew up in a wealthy house hold. My father was well known for breakthroughs in the technology field. He was working on many projects but the one that made him a multi-millionaire was the work in self-sustaining energy. When I was eighteen, my father and I went on a trip to China, a trip that would change our lives forever. It was a pretty quiet plane ride. Dad was working on his laptop and I was listening to music. I noticed there was a very bad storm out of the window. The plane was shaking. Suddenly the lights went out and the oxygen masks deployed. Something hit my head. The next thing I know we are in the water and my dad is yelling my name. I see him in the distance swimming towards me. He gets to me and gives me his life vest. He tells me that I have to survive, that his company isn’t what I thought it was. He gives me a book with a list of names and tells me that everyone on that list has done terrible things to stay rich, and that he is no different. He told me stories of how he and the people on this list got wealthy by stepping on the necks of the poor. That he has had people hurt or killed to keep his company on top. He stayed with me as long as he could but as time went by he got weaker. He couldn’t......

Collective Bargaining

...many news stories. Collective bargaining is a responsibility of the labor unions in which the writer of this post is the most familiar. This topic was chosen as a result of academic curiosity and an interest in developing a better understanding of the role of labor unions and collective bargaining in other countries. Explanation of Collective Bargaining In the United States the idea of collective bargaining has changed as labor relations between employees and employers have evolved and improved. In the past the idea of collective bargaining was not widely understood and there were opposing opinions on how to define collective bargaining. Chamberlain (1944) identifies two of these definitions: 1) “the process of arriving at an agreement as to terms and conditions of employment between a single workman and his employer, where the workman is represented by a labor union of which he is a member.” 2) “the arbitral decisions in which no negotiation may be involved”. In the first definition opponents may argue that the process was not collective. However, if the second definition is applied it could be argued that no bargaining occurs. Today, the definition has evolved to a more widely accepted definition as defined by Ball, Geringer, Mcnett, and Minor (2013) as “the process in which a union represents the interests of workers bargaining in negotiations with management” (p. 430). The remaining sections of this paper will explore if and how collective bargaining exists in...

Collective Agreements

...Collective Agreements As the collective aggreements are the negotiating tool between shareholders and employees, I initially prefer to make the analyses of the systems this tool aims to serve. On one side of the spectrum there are capitalist firms, where as on the other side we can say there exist the Labour managed Enterprises. In order to propose a better alternative to replace the collective aggreements we think a swot analysis for both side of the spectrum from the employee and company perspective would be useful. SWOT Labour Managed Enterprise Capitalist Firm Strength From Employee perspective: Higher motivation Job security Higher trust in the company Higher ownership From Profitability perspective: Higher productivity due to above From Employee perspective: Flexibile mobility Low risk Stable income No long term commitment requirement From Profitability perspective: Faster organizations Quick decisions in a competitive environment Experienced and educated management with vision Long term profitability priority Weakness Low motivation to self development From Profitability perspective: Insufficient commitment mechanism (“I” comes before “company”) Opportunities Increasing unemployment Rising individualizm culture Threats Financing Difficulty in raising Risk bearer capital Increased competitiveness Increased importance of workers in productivity As both systems carry pros and cons, an alternative to current collective......

Collective Bargaining

...Collective bargaining One of the aims of a trade union is to negotiate with employers about matters affecting their members and other employees. Once a trade union is recognized in a workplace, the negotiations they have with the employer are called collective bargaining; these negotiations will be regarding terms and conditions of employment. Trade unions and employers will agree on how the process will operate, for example: * who will represent the workers, or group of workers (bargaining unit) in negotiations * which workers are included in the bargaining unit * how often meetings will take place * which issues, including which terms and conditions will be discussed * how failures to agree will be resolved * how discussions will work if more than one trade union is recognised For trade unions and employers who face problems at work which result in a dispute Acas can help. Collective conciliation can move parties towards a resolution of a dispute through the expertise of an impartial and independent third party - for example through the use of Acas services. Bargaining is conducted by trade unions and employers. The union side may be made up of full-time officials, workplace representatives or a mix of both. Local union representatives are now much more likely to be involved in collective bargaining. The employers' side can be the individual employer or, if at industry level, the employers' association. There will often be several unions......
