Labor and Management Relations Training Videos

"America's 16.3 million union members represent a cross section of peopleówomen and men of all ages, races and ethnic groups. They work in hospitals and nursing homes, auto assembly plants and on construction sites, trains, buses and airplanes. They are security guards, musicians, electricians, postal workers, janitors and more." -- ALF-CIO website

Unions are a major part of American productivity. Almost any product made is the result of labor relations between management and the workforce or management and unions. Each party should be treated fairly and justly. Doing that sometimes gets lost. The training products on this page can help build better relationships and a better workforce.

America Today: Looking for the Union Label - DVD - $319.95

Union membership continues to lag and even the term "collective bargaining" carries a decidedly un-American connotation. Why have labor unions lost much of the influence they once exerted on the U.S. economy? In this program, a variety of labor leaders and social and political activists examines the dynamic shift in labor-management relations over the past four decades that has changed the face of the American workplace. Among those interviewed are Ralph Nader, George Washington University professor of law Charles Craver, Detroit AFL-CIO president Donald Boggs, and Teamsters leaders and organizers.

    Laborís Comeback: Laborís Man on the Board
    Labor and management relations training DVD.Duane Woerth, Director of Northwest Airlines, is different from most American corporate board directors. Heís a labor leader, representing employees who own 30 percent of Northwest. What gave Duane Woerth a role in setting corporate policy was the airlineís brush with bankruptcy in 1993. Woerth, a Northwest pilot for 15 years, joined with the leaders of other unions to offer the company $900 million in wage and work rule concessionsóconcessions that not only saved Northwest, but forced its corporate culture to change. Today, Northwest unions have three seats on the board, and influence decision-making from the boardroom to the shop floor. Collaboration between labor leaders such as Duane Woerth and CEO John Dasburg has helped to power Northwestís economic comeback, as the two sides work together to find new efficiencies and create skilled new union jobs.

From its humble beginning 15 years ago, the Solidarity Fund has become the second-largest source of venture capital in Canada, pooling more than $2 billion in workersí pensions. In the beginning, businesspeople were wary. Only two or three dared apply for Solidarity Fund money in the first few years. Today, Solidarity is swamped with hundreds of applications, and has become a 2-billion-dollar retirement fund with a tax break. Also, it has recently earned its 330,000 subscribers an average of 10 percent a year. American labor leaders are looking to Godboutís Solidarity Fund as a model. (30 minutes, color)

    Laborís Comeback: In-sourcing Work at Northwest Airlines
    Labor and management relations training DVD.This program includes conversations with airline machinist Marv Sandrin, and Northwest Vice President, Richard Anderson. Sandrin is former president of District Lodge 143 of the Machinistsí Union. He was employed at Northwest Airlines before the ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) gave him and his union an ownership stake in the company.

The deal made Northwest Airlinesí ESOP one of the biggest in the U.S. Sandrin has also participated in one of the most important experiments at Northwest: the creation of a union-management committee which gives workers a chance to bid on jobs that would otherwise be outsourced.

    Laborís Comeback: Pensions and Jobs
    Labor and management relations training DVD.Up to now, labor has turned over its pension funds to Wall Street money managers, with little concern for the impact its investments had on workers. But with membership down and jobs sliced away by foreign competition and corporate downsizing, some U.S. labor leaders see important new leverage in using pension funds to create union jobs. For instance, union pension funds were a critical part of a $280-million deal at the Newport News Shipyard where the money is being used to build a line of double-hulled oil tankersóa project that has saved 2,000 jobs. This AFL-CIO project and others like it have sparked unions and pointed the way toward new strategies to rejuvenate the movement and find creative ways to invest pension money. Labor leaders John Sweeney, Rich Trumka, and Leo Gerard comment. (30 minutes, color)

    Management Combines Forces with Unions ó Northwest Airlines
    Labor and management relations training DVD.In 1993, as CEO of Northwest Airlines, John Dasburg headed a company on the verge of bankruptcy. Dasburg pulled back from the brink by striking a dramatic agreement with Northwestís union. The union gave up 900 million dollars in wage and work rule concessions, and the owners gave labor three seats on the corporate board and 30 percent ownership of the company. The deal gave Northwest Airlines one of the United Statesí biggest ESOPsóEmployee Stock Ownership Plans. CEO Dasburg believes that Northwestís new relationship with its union gives it a competitive advantage. In the 1980s, Northwest labor relations were so bad that some people nicknamed the company "Cobra Airlines"ótheyíd strike at anything. Today, Northwest has made a stunning economic comeback, one that Dasburg attributes largely to good labor/management relations. Dasburg likes laborís presence on his board, and voluntarily extended their participation for another ten years. (30 minutes, color)

    Labor and management relations training DVD.As a microcosm of "Main Street America," this program focuses on the self-proclaimed City of the FutureóSan Diego, Californiaówhich has hitched its star to the promise of aggressive new information-age companies and rapid globalization.

In San Diego, we meet winners like the entrepreneurs who are creating their own tomorrow, as well as those Americans who are having trouble earning a secure tomorrow by loyalty and hard work. We see the high-tech elite as well as blue-collar factory workers and white-collar middle managers, forced into downward mobility or temp and part-time jobs. One special feature of this program is the personal stories of couples caught in the "time bind" of the New Economyóthe competing poles of family, home, children, and two careers.
