In the 1970s President Richard M. Nixon and President Gerald Ford appointed John Dunlop and David Cole to new posts to try to handle the stagflation and wave of strikes that were plaguing the U.S. economy. Their attempts to implement corporatist-style solutions failed. Secretary of Labor Dunlop’s resignation in early 1976 marked a turning point in relations between unions and corporations in the United States. Yet rather than retiring, Labor Board vets began resolving conflicts in other sectors of the economy—beginning with Major League Baseball and other professional sports.
