Determining Collusion in Negotiations

This article provides a method for determining the legal outcomes of a labor contract negotiation through determining the limits of rational negotiation and irrational negotiation bounded by labor law.

Manipulation of labor negotiations remains a problem in the U.S. and particularly abroad where labor laws are lacking. This paper provides an unobtrusive method for ensuring fairness and protecting the rights of the worker.
