When Keller returned to Kiev, he found that Brodsky had done well, but that behind his back, Antonov had been complaining to Munich about Keller's budget and management abilities. Keller asked Häussler’s aide to come early for his next scheduled trip to Kiev in mid-May to discuss the “difficulties in his relationship with Antonov.” He said if I thought my problems with Antonov were the main issue I still hadn’t understood anything. He told me that the people on corporate staff had been looking for an occasion to say no to me for two years, and finally they had decided to use the budget to get their message across. He reminded me about lots of incidents where I’d gotten special permission to do unusual things, or where they’d given me quick approvals without the usual detailed explanations, because I’d been able to convince them I was right. But they wanted to tell me that Königsbräu doesn’t operate that way under normal circumstances.

(Yates, “Why Unions Matter,” p 1) He explains how he was asked in 1994 to come to the PPG plant and speak about the legal rights for the employees who were trying to organize PPG in Meadville, PA. The plant employed mostly white males and their capitalist employers were exploiting some women who worked on the production lines. Yates explained he would only come if the people who were starting the organizing drive agreed that it was ok for him to speak to the factory workers. He was called back two weeks later by the Aluminum, Brick, and Glassworkers’ (ABG) to speak at a firehouse close to the PPG plant. His talk was taped and circulated throughout the plant.
I also brought it up in the weekly department meeting and it was agreed that an office assistant would be beneficial to everyone. The role would be nothing overly challenging but would require someone with good attention to detail, motivation and preferably some experience in a similar role or have an administration qualification. Unfortunately the appointed person met none of that criteria and rather than a help he was a very big hindrance. He was already employed within the company in a different department but his current position was no longer required and he was due to have his contract terminated. After less than a week working with us it was clear he was not a suitable person for the job.

Question One: Identifying the Key Issues Prior to examining the case of the Hanover-Bates Chemical Corporation, we have identified the following problems. Firstly, Hanover-Bates filled the position of their new sales manager, in the Northeast district, with an individual (Jim Sprague) who has much less experience then many sales representatives within the firm. Hanover-Bates views this as a good investment because their previous sales manager retired. Hiring Sprague ensures they will not have to repeat the hiring process within the next three years due to retirement. However, this placement resulted in on-going discussion between both district and corporate headquarter employees and consequently has Hanover-Bates’ best sales representative (Hank Carver) threatening to quit.
