LABOR ARBITRATION (LAW3 685), Mr. Henderson, Credits: 2

This course examines the law and practice of labor arbitration, which is the principal means for resolving disputes over the meaning and application of collective bargaining agreements. The main focus is the grievance-arbitration machinery, created by private agreement, and its coordination with courts and public law generally. The "common law" of arbitration is presented through contractual disputes involving such topics as discipline and discharge, management rights, seniority and subcontracting. The impact of law on the arbitral process is then considered, most notably the development of a federal common law of labor arbitration. The course will take account of the fact that arbitration under collective agreements has come to serve as a model for resolving employment disputes outside the union-management setting.
