The article discusses the results of a survey on the experience of Pennsylvania concerning compulsory arbitration for police and fire fighters in 1968. Collective bargaining negotiations in the state were slightly more common among fire departments than among police departments. The higher incidence of bargaining among fire fighters may be explained by the focus of fire departments in larger communities. Seventy municipalities among the survey group employed police and professional fire fighters and thus, offered an opportunity to study similarities and differences in bargaining patterns among public safety forces in similar government jurisdiction.
