We have been following the Powell's conflict and are looking for any Union members who would speak to us about your take or opinion on the situation. We would greatly appreciate hearing about not just the Union's key interests, actions, and posistions but also the way in which the communication between parties affected the management and potential resolution of the conflict. We are particuarly interested in the communication strategies used by both sides as well as other issues such as the affect of power on the conflict.
We are currenly constructing a list of more specific questions but for now are just seeking Union members who would be willing to talk with us. If possible, please contact me at the information listed at the end of the article. That way we could determine how best to talk with you. This does not have to be formal, we could just email some questions and that's it, or we could have a formal interview. It's up to you. If you don't feel comfortable talking with us directly, please feel free to post a reply in any way you desire.
We would also appreciate if anyone could give us any information about the following questions:
-Could we attend ILWU Local #5 Union meetings, if so, which Tuesday is the public welcome, and what time are the meetings?
-Does anyone know a member of management who would be willing to discuss such issues with us?
We greatly appreciate anyone willing to reply this post directly or indirectly.
Email me, Kevin, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks once again.
