Synopsis By: Lurie - Proceeding Author: Walter L. Eisenberg

Professor Eisenberg examines develops in public sector arbitration in New York City and State, including (1) the status of the arbitrability presumption, (2) some changes in policy on the subject of arbitrable issues, and (3) the grievance scene in state and localgovernment. “We may now be in a phase of public-sector grievance handling in which the scope of arbitrable issues faces further narrowing under decisional law, should existing statutory law fail to provide sufficiently explicit guidance on the scope of arbitrability. The primary hope for clarity rests at present with state legislatures.”
