The article explores the utilization of compulsory arbitration as a means of settling labor disputes in the U.S. Critics of compulsory arbitration of labor disputes hold the view that it would jeopardize the freedom of labor unions, employees and employers. The National Association of Manufacturers claimed that compulsory arbitration violates the concept of freedom in the country. The question of acceptability--will labor and management accept suggestions and decisions on issues affecting their vital interests, such as wages, hours, job security and others, from third party neutrals and arbitrators?--hinders the utilization of compulsory arbitration in labor disputes.
