Abstract
This thesis contains an information guide to, and an economic evaluation of arbitration in the public sector. The research has resulted in the description of legal relationships between compulsory arbitration and employee's and manager's rights. It describes procedures to follow in selecting an arbitrator and discusses how to prepare and present an arbitration case. The economic evaluation defines specific costs and benefits and evaluates the effect of arbitration on wage and benefits of public employees. The conclusions provide managers with an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of arbitration in the federal sector and provide mid-level managers with a guide to the procedural steps up to and including the arbitration process Strengths include those benefits derived such as protection of employee interest, political and social stability, and inferred public and private wage parity. Weaknesses are the unmeasurable cost to the tax payer resulting from the allocating of scarce public resources by non-representative third party arbitrators. Recommendations are made for further cost benefit analysis on subjects relating to arbitration in the federal sector.
