Abstract : A crucial part of any collective bargaining agreement in the federal sector is the section which includes grievance and arbitration provisions. Grievance arbitration in federal collective bargaining agreements was permitted by Executive Order 10988 issued in 1962. Since then, the incidence of these provisions in negotiated labor agreements has increased steadily. It was felt that most labor agreements in the federal sector now contain grievance procedures with binding arbitration. This hypothesis proved to be true in the limited sample used for this report. Eleven of the twenty contracts selected contained binding arbitration provisions. The most interesting finding is the many different types of grievance procedures detected in such a limited sample. Thirteen noticeably different grievance procedures were recognized in the study. (Modified author abstract)
