Abstract

This chapter describes the background of the Steelworkers' Trilogy cases, three cases that defined the nature of collective bargaining and the role of arbitration under U.S. labor law. The chapter begins with a discussion of the historical problem of enforcement of collective bargaining agreements from the early 20th century until the Trilogy cases were decided in 1960. It also discusses the history of the use of arbitration as an alternative mechanism to judicial enforcement. The author provides details about the background of the three Trilogy cases, the history of the cases in the lower courts, the legal strategy of Arthur Goldberg and David Feller, and the outcomes in the Supreme Court.

Keywords: Steelworker's Trilogy cases, collective bargaining, labor arbitration
