Explain whether public employees should have a right to organize and strike. Provide a rationale for your statements.

Assume that the current CBA is set to expire in six months. Based on your research,

Analyze key issues that should be included in the new CBA.

Design a grievance procedure and policy within the CBA for each party to follow if disputes arise under the CBA.
