Written by Carl Bosland, a long time advocate, arbitrator, lecturer and author on federal labor arbitration and arbitration advocacy, this easy-to-understand, yet comprehensive handbook on the labor arbitration process provides advocates, both union and management, with practical guidance and best practices to effectively prepare and present their case to a neutral arbitrator. After an overview of the arbitration process, chapters are organized to follow the sequence of the arbitration process, from prehearing investigation through posthearing appeals of the award.

Labor Arbitration Practice for the Federal Sector also includes extensive strategies, tactics, tips, and pitfalls to avoid on topics including:

Carl Bosland’s excellent Labor Arbitration Practice for the Federal Sector has already earned a permanent and prominent place with my advocacy resources. While targeted at labor arbitration practice, the practice points it explains apply equally well to almost any advocacy setting, whether EEOC, MSPB, FLRA, NLRB, or court proceedings.

Labor Arbitration Practice provides a concise, yet thorough and comprehensive practice guide for all aspects of labor arbitration. Whether for the first-time advocate, or the experienced manager, Mr. Bosland’s invaluable book delivers precise, on-point practical counsel from pre-arbitration case investigation through to building the record and avenues of appeal. Particularly helpful are an impressively useful Bibliography, and an outstanding Table of Contents which gets the reader to exactly the necessary subject.

I highly recommend this valuable resource.

Labor Arbitration Practice for the Federal Sector is an excellent reference for the federal labor arbitration practitioner as well as neutrals. It is a concise, well organized resource offering guidance on all aspects of labor arbitration. Carl’s observations are insightful, born of many years of experience both as an advocate and an arbitrator. I would highly recommend it to all federal practitioners, novice or experienced.

An excellent piece of work and a very thorough treatment of the topic. I really like the way the material is laid out; in the sequence an advocate would handle an arbitration, from reviewing the grievance file to appellate options following the receipt of the arbitration decision. A fine job of combining substantive principles of law and arbitration with practical pointers. I particularly like Chapter 6 on witness selection and preparation, an area that is too often overlooked by even experienced advocates. This book would benefit lawyer and non-lawyer advocates alike.
