7 Secrets of Union Management Success with Teams, Michigan News

7 Secrets of Union Management Success with Teams, Michigan News | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it

What are the 7 secrets to sustainability with teams, management and unions? We presented our lessons learned at the recent Partnerships in Progress Michigan Labor and Management Association (MLMA) Conference in East Lansing, Michigan."


Overview:  Once what I want differs from what you want, we are in conflict. Conflict will naturally increase when shifting from a supervisor-to-employee model to a team model. This presentation describes a whole system, top to bottom and side to side process to implement teams in a union environment.


The “from me to we” shift is continuous process that requires a different type of renewal annually. With commitment to this approach, everyone from top management and union officials down to frontline supervisors and employees can mutually benefit.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Sustainability means "Never check the box" (the work never finishes) along with elevating the importance of growing relationships within and among union and management leaders and the work community.

This was one of my own recent presentations with Fenwick Koller Associates, who have made great progress in helping teamwork happen and sustain itself within very tradition-bound settings.  Let us know if you agree.

Really, now: Who Killed Hostess Brands and Twinkies? via Forbes

Really, now:  Who Killed Hostess Brands and Twinkies? via Forbes | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it

"I’m sure you have, by now, heard the news."


It was the demands of the union, so many say.  However, there are other perspectives to the Hostess story. It's time for a reality check on what's happening to the furture of the nostalgic Twinkie. ~  D

Time for a reality check.

Excerpts:


More than a few observers say they know who to blame: the union representing thousands of striking Hostess Brand workers who have refused to accept a new contract that would do everything from slash their salaries to their retirement benefits.

  

Time for a reality check.

  

  • Hostess has been sold at least three times since the 1980s, racking up debt and shedding profitable assets along the way with each successive merger.

      

  • The company filed for bankruptcy in 2004, and again in 2011.

      

  • Little thought was given to the line of products, which, frankly, began to seem a bit dated in the age of the gourmet cupcake. (100 calorie Twinkie Bites?  Really?)

Hostess Brands’ management gave themselves several raises, all the while complaining that the workers who actually produced the products...were grossly overpaid...

So now an estimated 18,500 workers will join the nation’s unemployment rolls. But ...it’s unlikely such a fate awaits such signature products as Twinkies. Company executives have already asked for ...permission to ...selling off their famed product lines to other companies.
