Dealing with conflicts: Some conflicts may arise from taking on the responsibility of leader within the negotiations team. Such conflicts may include coming up with an agreed collective agreement. This may cause a conflict between the employees and management. Since we are in charge of negotiations we will have to use a collaborative management style and try to satisfy everyone's needs so people do not become irate. Many things can be the cause of this such as fellow employees. Some may not agree with joining the union or agree with the agreement. This can cause tension between the appointed leader and his fellow workers.
Satisfying Fellow Employees: Some employees may not agree at all with the agreement and we will have to try and satisfy everyone's need. This will be quite difficult because not everyone has the same opinion. If a common agreement is not chosen then we will have to come up with our own which will make the whole group unsatisfied in the end.
