Caregivers versus Management?

I met with a young caregiver yesterday evening who is organising a pretty big project and one of the problems she is facing is the lack of responsible caregivers in the area. She said that many of the caregivers are suspicious of 'authority' and don't want to work with the management of the area. I can understand she's having problems with getting both sides to work together and I sympathise with her - but I think the old adversarial position should no longer be a model that we look at. For example it shouldn't be caregivers versus management authority.

At the end of the day, we're all working towards the same thing - less cats, better managed colonies, well managed cats. So why are we at loggerheads with each other? Now if we can only convince all parties involved.
