Disaster Recover Homework

Filling the Human Gap

  1. You work for a medium seized manufacturing company that has a well developed DR plan. The plan is well tested and the testing has revealed a serious personnel gap
  2. During a recovery, key personnel in the manufacturing process are unionized, and the collective bargaining agreement does not specify either payment for union employees or the use of alternative personnel during emergencies.
  3. Provide a well-reasoned argument that would allow your company to use nonunion workers or allow the company to correct the personnel gap during an emergency.
