Management’s Obligation to Meet the Cost of Living Increase The cost of living in Alderdale California has gone up 10 percent during the year

Management’s Obligation to Meet
the Cost of Living Increase

The cost of living in Alderdale,
California, has gone up 10 percent during the year, and Steve’s union has been
negotiating with the management of the plant where he works for a 15 percent
raise to cover the present cost of living plus an additional expected increase
The plant, however, has not had a good year, and management and the union
decide upon an 8 percent raise, which a majority of the members, not including
Steve, agrees to Steve decides that because he has been shorted 2 to 7 percent
of his raise money, he will try to make up for it by taking some expensive
tools, some small pieces of equipment, and some supplies home from the plant in
order to remodel his workshop at home He was planning to do this remodeling
with some of the raise money anyway, and he feels he was cheated out of this
money unfairly because he didn’t wote for the raise that was accepted by the
union

 

Is Steve justified in his actions?
Why, or why not? Does management have any obligation to meet the cost of
living? Because Steve voted against the smaller raise, is he under any
obligation to accept it? Why, or why not? Is he justified in making up the
difference between the raise he got and the cost of living by taking things
from the plant? Why, or why not?
