In your first course project assignment, you devised a plan for Michelle so that she could be prepared for her negotiation with her boss. Clearly, Michelle is upset over having to switch shifts and consequently locate new or additional daycare. At this point in the conflict, Nikki is aware of Michelle being displeased with the shift change and knows that she wants to meet, but is unaware of reasons behind it. Michelle devised the new schedule based solely on seniority and nothing else. She thought that this was the fairest way possible given that the policy change affected everyone’s schedule. She does not want the situation with Michelle to snowball into a bigger issue with overall dissatisfaction with the employees. Nikki feels that there is a section of employees who should not receive the preferential shifts because they are continuous problems in the workplace (this is a true and documented statement) regardless of the fact that they have worked at the call center longer.
