The two major areas of litigation concerning collective bargaining are challenges to arbitrability and to arbitrators' awards and contests over the scope of bargaining. As these topics indicate, there is currently more dispute over the differences the parties have in carrying out their bilateral relationship in bargaining than over the existence of bargaining. Although the number of court cases in this area has decreased, the number of disputes may not actually be decreasing because there has not been a decrease in the case loads of public employee relations boards. The current fiscal crisis in education has added a new dimension to litigation by prompting actions that have resulted in litigation. Six cases that are likely to be trendsetters are presented in capsule form. (Author/IRT)
