Waldenville Negotiations - Part One

Around 1980, the U.S. Dept. of Labor commissioned a film series - Waldenville - showing a fictional union-management negotiation for a new contract in a city. At the time, unionization in the public sector had grown substantially because of changes in federal, state, and local laws. The Waldenville series was a response. However, it shows generic aspects of such negotiations as well as elements specific to the public sector. In the negotiations component shown here, the parties eventually come to a stalemate. Note that at the time the film was made, inflation was quite high. The wage discussion reflects the high inflation rate. This is Part One of Five parts.
