Synopsis By: - Proceeding Author: Lise Gelernter

Ms. Gelernter questions whether the Court has conflated the public policy purpose of labor arbitration – achieving industrial peace – with the goal of commercial arbitration – the parties’ freedom to choose how they will resolve their contractual disputes. Ms. Gelernter furnishes a critical assessment of historical and recent court rulings and posits that Pyett represents may yield unintended consequences.
