The article reports on research work related to labour-management relations, conducted in University of California, Los Angeles, California. Economist. Paul Prasow will examine the extent to which areas of jurisdictional controversy between civil service tribunals and grievance arbitration procedures under a negotiated memorandum of understanding can be minimized. He will isolate issues that may properly be considered matters of concurrent jurisdiction that would permit the appellant an election of remedies. In another study Prasow is comparing the arbitration of grievances in the private sector under the terms of negotiated collective bargaining agreements and the adjudication of grievances arising in the public sector. This comparison is intended to show the complexity of procedures in the public sector. A third study will examine the role the prevailing rate systems play in collective bargaining in the public sector. Economist Charles O'Reilly will study attitudes toward collective bargaining and strike activity of a sample of nurses who have had recent activity in this area.
