Wearing gloves to avoid fingerprints, they went into the office stairwell. They opened the door, which had been taped to prevent it from locking. They ascended the stairs to the sixth floor, where the Democratic National Committee keeps documents. They broke into files and stole documents and video cameras. WE WRITE YOUR ESSAYS ON ANY TOPICS! The security officer of the Watergate, Frank Wills, found the taped door and contacted the police at 2:00 a.m. The police arrived and began searching the office building. When they saw lights on the eighth floor, they rushed up the stairs.
During this time, Nixon was vacationing in the Bahamas. He received a phone call saying that the burglars had been arrested. Knowing this, Nixon began figuring out a way to stop all leads that made it obvious that the men worked for him. When an investigation took place, Nixon had to cover up the fact that these men were employed by the United States government and worked in the White House. He had to do this so it would not effect his chances of reelection (The American Presidency). The men involved in the break-in were Barker, McCord, Hunt, Gonzalez, Martinez, Liddy, and Sturgis. The Washington Post began covering the Watergate story. Two reporters, Bob Woodward and Carl Berstein, found out that Liddy and Hunt were two of the men involved in the break-in. In the summer of 1972, Herbert Kalmbach, a presidential advisor, flew from California to Washington D.C. 100,000 . Kalmbach told Stans that this was for a special assignment that he had been given.

He crushed his opponent, Senator George McGovenrn. These men appeared before Judge James A. Belson (Cook 13). The five men, who actually broke into the Watergate Hotel, Hunt, Barker, Gonzalez, Martinez, and Sturgis, all plead guilty to breaking and entering. Also, in April 1973, many of Nixon’s advisors started resigning. These men included Bob Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, and Richard Kleindiest. After being fired, Dean started thinking that the president had been taping conversations. Then Sam Dash questioned John Dean. Dash had been questioning minor witnesses. He had his legal aids back him up on all his questions. Alexander Butterfeild, advisor to Nixon, Began being questioned. His interogation was similar to Dean’s, with a few minor changes. Only Butterfield’s interogation made Nixon look good. When asked by Don Sanders, Sam Dash’s legal aid, Butterfield admitted that all White House conversations had been taped (Cook 135-136). In May 1973, the trials began.
The management rights clause of your CBA gives management broad authority to run the work in an efficient manner. But that doesn’t mean they can make any changes they want without first consulting the union. Even if there is no specific language in your current CBA regarding the proposed change, anything involving wages, hours, and working conditions could be, by law, a mandatory subject of bargaining. Working conditions covers a lot of territory, including both economic and non-economic aspects of the job — even the company’s work rules. As plants modernize, they often bring in new equipment or initiate new work procedures. It is important to remind the company of their obligation to negotiate with the union on any change that materially affects the bargaining unit, whether it is specifically mentioned in the CBA or not. Subcontracting is another issue for negotiation, whether it is mentioned in the CBA or not.
