Abstract : On 17 January 1962, Executive Order 10988 (Employee-Management Cooperation in the Federal Service) ushered the Federal manager (both military and civilian) into a new era of employee-management relations. The unknown impact of the Order and its many possible implications within DOD had led to the development of a multiple measuring method (interview, questionnaire, statistical records, content analysis, and tabulation of critical incidents), to determine how management and 'unions' have been effected by this Order. All of the military services and the employee organizations dealing with DOD activities were surveyed at the Washington level, and also a questionnaire was sent to a random group of 110 military activities and their corresponding 'union' locals. Reliability and validity were established at .87+ and .74+ respectively. The final results were plotted on an ordinal bipolar scale with a positive correlation of .405.
