Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Gabriel N. Alexander, James C. Hill

Arbitrator Alexander gives his perceptions on the evaluation of arbitrators by employers and unions. The lack of a generally accepted statement of what is desirable is posited to be an obstacle to 1) the training of new arbitrators and 2) the improvement of arbitrators whose acceptance is marginal, as well as a handicap to appointing agencies in the addition of acceptable newcomers. Arbitrator Hill offers his own opinions about arbitrator competence.
