The use of arbitration to resolve labor disputes has become an irreplaceable method of dispute resolution in private enterprises and corporations all over the United States. Arbitration's popularity has come about partially from a realization of the utility of arbitration and partially from government pressure through the enactment of federal statutes. However, the government itself has resisted the imposition of arbitration to resolve disputes between its agencies and their employees. This Note will address some of the issues involved in private arbitration of public agency labor disputes.
