Synopsis By: Ray - Proceeding Author: William B. Gould IV, James P. Kurtz

A summary of 1973 and 1974 federal court and NLRB rulings involving labor arbitration.

Gardner-Denver – holding that submitting a dispute to labor arbitration does not preclude a later suit under Title VII. The article also discusses (1) federal court decisions involving Section 301actions to compel or stay arbitration or to review or enforce arbitration awards and injunctions and (2) NLRB cases dealing with deferral under Collyer and Spielberg.
