Photochemical reactor modeling: a case-study problem. Although radiation is important in heat transfer, an analogous model can be used in the design of photochemical reactors. The modeling of these reactors….
Discuss this issue with regard to the mentioned case. What options might be pursued, and would they still involve “collective coercive action”?
Managers at a mining and refinery operation have consistently kept wages below industry-wide levels .They have also sacrificed worker safety to save costs by not installing special structural reinforcements in the mines, and they have made no effort to control excessive pollution of the work environment. As a result, the operation has reaped larger-than-average profits. Management has been approached both by individuals and by representatives of employee groups about raising wages and taking the steps necessary to ensure worker safety, but to no avail. A nonviolent strike is called, and the metallurgical engineers support it for reasons of worker safety and public health. In the past, engineering societies have generally portrayed participation by engineers in unions and collective bargaining in engineering as unprofessional and disloyal to employers. Critics reply that such generalized prohibitions reflect the excessive degree to which engineering is still dominated by corporations’ interests. Discuss this issue with regard to the mentioned case. What options might be pursued, and would they still involve “collective coercive action”?
