In this article, Professor Nolan and Dean Abrams explore the origins of the modern labor arbitration process through its early years. Before the twentieth century, arbitration was used as a means for resolving bargaining disputes and industrial conflict. Only in the 1930s with the organization of major manufacturing industries would the current form of grievance arbitration emerge.
