The classic text on labor arbitration.

Labor law and dispute resolution professionals have long considered this to be the standard text on labor arbitration. Written by specialists from the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law's Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution in Labor and Employment Law, this definitive resource benefits arbitrators, advocates, and scholars. The editors apply authoritative analysis of basic practice and procedure to integrate relevant laws and their impact on dispute resolution, collective bargaining, and related issues.

The Sixth Edition expands coverage to consider over one hundred new topics and updates the Fifth Edition with hundreds of recent arbitration awards and references to important judicial decisions, academic and professional commentary, administrative agency regulations and opinions, and federal and state legislation.

Due to the growing importance of public sector arbitration, separate chapters are devoted to federal labor arbitration issues, and state and local arbitration issues. The chapters on "Interpreting Contract Language" and "Evidence" have been thoroughly revised to reflect the trend of modern critical thought concerning issues such as ambiguity in contract interpretation, hearsay, and after-acquired evidence. Changing views on the availability of non-traditional remedies such as attorneys' fees and interest awards are reflected in a new chapter on "Remedies". And, because collective bargaining agreements increasingly incorporate federal and state statutory standards, the Sixth Edition contains an extended treatment of legislative regulations and judicial decisions that bear upon arbitration issues.

Extensive footnoting, a table of arbitrators, a complete table of arbitration awards, a table of cases, a table of statutory citations, and a helpful index will save you time finding vital information. In addition, topics in the chapters are identified by BNA's Labor Arbitration Reports Cumulative Digest Index (LA CDI) classification numbers, making it easier to do additional research in that reference service. (See related books, How ADR Works and Discipline and Discharge in Arbitration, both published by BNA Books.)

How Arbitration Works includes chapters on arbitration and its setting; legal status of arbitration in the private sector; scope of labor arbitration; the arbitration tribunal; grievances: prelude to arbitration; determining arbitrability; arbitration procedures and techniques; evidence; interpreting contract language; use of substantive rules of law; precedential value of arbitral awards; custom and past practice; management rights; seniority; discipline and discharge; safety and health; employee rights and benefits; remedies in arbitration; constitutional issues in public-sector arbitration; legal status of arbitration in the federal sector; issues in state and local government sector arbitration; and arbitration of interest disputes.
