About the Author

Wayne Horvitz enjoys a high reputation in both labor and management circles, having spent a distinguished 60-year career in the business of bringing the two sides together. Initially a management negotiator in industry, he became an officer of Matson Navigation Company, later serving as Matson's chief Washington lobbyist. He later served as chairman of the Joint Labor Management Committee of the Retail Food Industry, a tripartite group that stabilized labor relations in the retail food industry. As director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service during the Carter Administration, Horvitz worked on some of the most complicated labor stoppages in our history. He later spent 25 years as eminence grise to Jerry Grinstein, CEO of Western Airlines, Burlington Northern Railroad, and Delta Airlines, battling bankruptcy, pension and labor problems, and the turmoil brought on by airline deregulation.
