Synopsis By: Golick - Proceeding Author: Robert M. Ackerman, Scott Buchheit

An exploration of current problems and opportunities in the arbitration of interest disputes. The authors consider the process, the involvement of administrative agencies, the statutory criteria, the structure of the arbitration panel, ethical and practical issues, the role of mediation, fee arrangements, and other subjects. Two problems of interest disputes given special attention are justiciability and bargaining in the public sector. The authors conclude that, despite problems, interest arbitration seems to work.
