    • Abstract:
      The article reports that under the U.S. National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) Collyer policy, the Board will defer to and recognize final and binding contractual arbitration provided all parties agree to be bound by and participate in the arbitration, the proceedings are fair and regular, and the award is not contrary to the purposes of the National Labor Relations Act. Between August of 1971, the date of the Collyer decision, and June of 1974, only seven of 57 cases deferred were reconsidered by the Board. Opponents point out that this annual average of 14 cases is an insignificant portion of the Board's workload. Between May of 1973 and April of 1974, regional offices deferred in 511 cases. An award issued in 79 of those, but four were found insufficient to meet NLRB standards.
