Abstract

In this Article, we propose to review the positions asserted in the debates over the arbitrator's role; to show how some of these positions are illegitimate or fundamentally incompatible with the context within which arbitration operates, while others are simply incomplete; and to offer a new formulation of the arbitrator's job as a composite of several widely recognized roles. Tentative as it is, our approach to role definition describes the position of labor arbitration in the American system of industrial relations more accurately than any of the earlier attempts.
