THE FUTURE OF WORK, WORKERS, and WORKPLACE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Two prominent arbitrators-scholars kick off this mini-symposium by emphasizing that, at a time of sweeping technological change in the workplace, the nation’s labor-management relations system is struggling – and often failing — to serve workers’ needs as well as those of society at large. Articles recently published in the Dispute Resolution Journal by Tom Kochan and Arnold Zach provide a critical examination of the system’s many shortcomings and identify fundamental reforms necessary for the nation’s labor-management relations system to meet its basic objectives. Here, we present executive summaries of their articles with links to the full published versions.
