Synopsis By: Strongin - Proceeding Author: William W. Waite

Discussion of wage incentives, defined as all monetary payments made to employees as an encouragement to perform work. The author divides the discussion into two parts: contract interpretation and factual analysis. The author emphasizes the importance of a conservative arbitral approach, so as not to upset the established system. The author emphasizes that arbitrators must be fully informed, and that a visit to the shop floor might be much more important than witness testimony.
