Synopsis By: Marx - Proceeding Author: Arvid Anderson, Joan Weitzman

A report by the Academy’s Committee on Public Employment Disputes Settlement. By 1974, thirty-six states had enacted collective bargaining statues covering all or some categories of public employees. The report reviews state legislation and court and agency decisions concerning public sector representation and bargaining; amendments to Executive Order 11491, involving the Federal Service Impasse Panel; and Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service activities as an “active advocate of bargaining in certified federal employee units” and in mediation of public sector disputes in state and local jurisdictions which “lack adequate dispute resolution capacity”.
