Threatening to resign isn't a good negotiation strategy unless you really are fed up. Even then, negotiating while fed up is probably not the best strategy either. Better to use a third party to mediate.
My dad owned a business that he had purchased from the long time owner. A critical employee came in a week or so after the old boss had retired and demanded a pay raise or else. So dad calls the old boss who advised to meet the wage demand and then retrain someone to share the duties with the critical employee (he also advised to fire the critical employee when this was accomplished, which dad didn't do--the retraining had sent the message that was needed).

As always, it's best to spell out the product and quality expected, deadlines, procedures, etc. in the contract and to have set out specific ADR principles in the contract (not just an arbitration clause). That sets one up to be able to use ADR to negotiate oneself out of these disputes or, failing that, schedule mediation. For both sides, it's important to recognize the conjunctive interest to resolve disputes quickly in order to save both sides money. The verticle system (including courts and arbitration) rob projects of excess value.
The way the California Environmental Quality Act is administered sets up these projects to be held up in the courts. This results in a "let's make a deal" attitude from both sides at the end game. This may benefit the public, but often does not include a public component when deals are cut outside of the public meetings (outside court, etc.).
