Case Study: The assessment item is based on the case study titled Constructive Relations at Top Trucking Company (Pages 169-170 of the textbook):
Based on this case study, write a business report that answers all the three questions:
- How do the new workplace practices introduced by the new yard manager complement one another?
- What are the risks to sustaining these changes if George or the yard manager moves on?
- Do you think tough blue collar unions like the Transport Workers Union are more of less likely to engage in workplace changes like these than public or service sector unions? Why? How would you find out if you are right?
All answers must be written with supporting academic references, including at least 10 peer reviewed journal articles. Please see the Moodle unit website for more details.
