John BuddJohn Budd has announced that an updated version of The Zinnia collective bargaining simulation is now online at http://www.thezinnia.com/. This simulation involves a fictitious 300-room hotel in Minneapolis (The Zinnia) and a fictitious local union. Students must explore the hotel and union websites in order to learn about the environment and determine their priorities and constraints, and then re-negotiate an expiring contract. Bargaining can take place by whatever means the instructor specifies (in person, online, etc.). This simulation is designed to accompany his textbook (Labor Relations: Striking a Balance, now in its 5th edition published by McGraw-Hill), but all of the simulation materials are freely accessible online for anyone to use. The simulation includes a costing spreadsheet for students. Instructors can contact John at [email protected] for the passwords to allow the hotel and union negotiating teams to access some private management-only or union-only materials.
