attention on “one, risky endeavor” like the one Harborco is proposing. 4. Potential Opponents The Unions and the Governor seem to have no interest in environmental issues and let the deal go through, hence, they are our potential opponents. We would argue that any new port should face the same labor costs we face (our ports are completely unionized), thus, the Unions should be fair and apply the same rule for Harborco. Also we would talk about environmental issues as negative outcomes of this project to persuade the Governor not to support Harborco. She would probably care about her state’s environmental and ecological issues. 5. BATNA Any number less than 31 points would not be worth our time. Our BATNA is to sue Harborco at a later time in order to receive compensation. 6. Information Gathering My question would be “What data can you show this group that explains your belief that your port will be beneficial to our existing ports?” This question will bring one of our major doubts to the entire group in an unaggressive manner.
