This chapter focuses on 1981 cases relative to collective bargaining. The author notes that after a decline in litigation, as reported in the previous edition, the number of bargaining cases rose again during the past year. The dominant area of controversy involved grievance arbitration. The second largest number of cases, dwarfed by the first category, involved scope of bargaining. Running throughout all the cases and perhaps prodding the increase in litigation were disputes concerning the results of decreased revenues and other efforts to cope with fiscal crisis. Topics of specific cases described by the author include recognition of unions and representation problems, rights and obligations of exclusive bargaining representatives, scope of bargaining, grievances, judicial review of awards, effect of the legislative process, impasse and dispute resolution, strikes and related protest, and public employment relations boards. Six cases that are likely to be trendsetters are presented in capsule form. (Author/MLF)
