Hinshaw offers perspective on bus strike


August 5, 2013

Clinical Professor Art Hinshaw weighed in on a recent bus driver strike in the southeast Valley during an interview with Mark Brodie of KJZZ on Aug. 2.

Hinshaw was asked to speculate as to what was going on in the negotiations once the strike was called. He said that what usually happens is that the negotiators are reassessing their goals and interests, and reassign the goals and interests of their counterparts.  Download Full Image

“The negotiators will spend a lot of time going back and forth on this,” Hinshaw said.

He went on to say that the threat of a strike gives a unionized workforce its most leverage in labor negotiations. Once a strike is called, however, a new group of people are brought into the negotiation – those who are impacted by the strike.

He is active in the ADR community, having served on several academic and professional committees at the state and national levels. Currently, he serves as a member of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Mediator Ethical Guidance.
