Walton and mckersie a behavioral theory of negotiations approach to analyzing the baseball strike

Walton and McKersie (A Behavioral Theory of Negotiations) approach to analyzing the baseball strike

  • Subcomponents of bargaining

    • Distributive

      • Allocation of baseball revenues

    • Integrative

      • Exploration of mutual gains through cooperation

    • Attitudinal structuring

      • Behavioral atmosphere around the bargaining table

    • Intra-organizational bargaining

      • Accommodating interests of constituencies


Distributive and integrative bargaining

Distributive and Integrative Bargaining

  • Revenues are $billions

  • A lot to fight over, visible through media

  • Tradition has given players and owners a lot of practice with win-loss bargaining.

  • Not much to say about win-win solution seeking in baseball negotiations.

    • Though creative thinking is likely critical to making negotiations successful


Attitudes and intra organizational issues

Attitudes and intra-organizational issues

  • Lead negotiators for owners and players have been extremely conflictual and adversarial

  • Lack of trust is a problem also

  • Face-saving not valued

  • Owners seem less cohesive as a group (big/small market teams, U.S./Canadian laws)

  • Players diverse also, but seem to have managed intra-organizational bargaining better


Other issues

Other issues

  • Timing of strike by players….strategic.

  • Clinton intervention is curious

    • (he chose not to intervene in a critical NorthWest Airlines strike later in his presidency)

  • What about current Baseball Labor issues?
