Answer in Management for Koushik #273396
In a multinational company (MNC) the collective bargaining process was going on. The union puts up its demands to the management. But the management also had some issues to place before the unions. They said that they would consider the demands of the union only if the union is ready to make some compromise.
The MNC was catering to the markets of the USA and Europe. At the same time they had 50% dependence on the domestic market. But due to the Global Financial Crisis, the remaining 50% export orders were affected. From 50%, it has gone down to 10%, a reduction of 40%.
This is a grave situation indeed. The company may not survive only with the domestic market.

Reduce manpower by 20 % or
Reduce wages to meet the slack in demand
