Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Laura J. Cooper

While adhering to the terms of the CBA between Ford Motor Company and the UAW during wartime, Arbitrator Harry Shulman nonetheless interpreted those terms broadly, so as to produce results that did not discriminate against women by reason of their sex. The author concludes that “the labor arbitration process was capable of listening to the concerns of new and different work force entrants and of satisfactorily resolving their grievances.”
