Synopsis By: Goldman - Proceeding Author: James P. Mitchell

The Secretary of Labor identifies the danger of using arbitration as a substitute for the parties themselves negotiating their own agreements and resolving the differences that arise thereunder, the need for management and labor to be mindful of the public interest in their agreements, and the danger of legislated compulsory arbitration. He urges union and management to meet with their counterparts, away from the bargaining table, to discuss common problems.
