Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Roy L. Heenan, Robert J. Pleasure

The AFL-CIO representative opines that the law of arbitration must keep pace with the transformation of the workplace and evolving needs of workers, and that the arbitration process must be made more accessible. He concludes that the United States labor movement must reorganize. The management attorney asserts that the hierarchical managerial structure is doomed, that we are in a knowledge-based economy, and that adversarialism – which has heretofore been the basis for the labor-management relationship – must be abandoned in favor of cooperation and union involvement. An open discussion follows.
