Synopsis By: Goldman - Proceeding Author: David E. Feller, Jesse Freidin, Sam Kagel

Reflections on the language of the Steelworkers’ Trilogy. The author warns against any construing of “industrial common law” that would allow arbitrators to go outside the corners of the CBA. Freidin and Feller debate whether an employer should be deemed to have agreed to arbitrate the claimed violation of any term unless specifically included in the arbitration clause.
