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. Given certain laws protecting union workers, leverage in detecting colluding strategies is available. 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.
