ABA offers new handbook about labor arbitration

Published by the American Bar Association, “Labor Arbitration Practice: An Advocate’s Handbook” leads the reader through each step of the labor arbitration process from the perspective of the advocate. The book was written for union and management lawyers and lay advocates alike. In virtually all aspects of case preparation and presentation, the tasks of a union advocate are mirror images of those of his or her employer counterpart, and vice versa. In the many examples and practical tips found throughout the book, both union and employer perspectives are reflected.

Though this book deals solely with labor arbitration, advocates may find themselves with a case in other related arenas, such as employment disputes in nonunion settings, and may find relevant and useful information in most of the chapters of this book.

Author Charles Loughran has made a career spanning 55 years in the fields of labor relations and collective bargaining. He has hands-on experience as a labor negotiator, arbitration advocate, labor relations executive, employment mediator and labor arbitrator. Loughran has held labor and human resource executive positions in the private and public sectors. He has written and lectured extensively, and wrote “Negotiating a Labor Contract,” (3d ed., BNA Books, 2003) and “How to Prepare and Present a Labor Arbitration Case” (2d ed., BNA Books, 2006).

This book was published in conjunction with the ABA Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division.

The hardcover “Labor Arbitration Practice: An Advocate’s Handbook” costs $229.95 and can be ordered by calling 800-285-2221 or online at shopaba.org.
