LAW 493 - Labor Arbtrtn & Colctv Brgning


This course will focus on collective bargaining and how labor arbitration had its genesis in the collective bargaining contract. The course will cover the “federal common law” that has developed in support of traditional labor arbitration. The course will cover how labor contracts are negotiated and discuss the arbitration provisions that are normally included in such labor contracts. The course will cover the possible expansion and use of labor arbitration as a substitute for employment litigation in the courts. The course will emphasize both the theoretical and practical application of the arbitration system to current employment issues. A paper will be required in lieu of an exam; however, the course does not satisfy the writing requirement.
