An Interest Arbitration Hearing
Question 1: Assume the role of a Conventional Interest Arbitration: Analyze the arguments
for a two-year vs. a three-year contract. Which arguments are most compelling?
Why?
The City’s argument is more compelling because the two-year contract will enable it to
bargain with all employees in one year instead of bargaining with PSU in one year and then the
Association the following year (Carrell, & Bales, 2013). The City also argues that the current
Health Care Plan is no longer going to be offered by Local Health Maintenance Organization for
the next two years. It would ensure a new health care provision consistent with new coverage
after two years. The Association argues that since time has gone the two-year contract would
just be less a few months. It also argues that the contract has been three years for the last four
years and the City has to convince the arbitrator before altering the status quo.
Question 2: Turning to the wage issue, consider the three “other factors.”
(1) the ability to pay. (2) bargaining history of the parties and (3) retention
and recruitment of personnel. Which side does each factor tend to favor? Why?
1.

According to the argument of the city on how great recession has affected the revenue it is,

clear that the City is not in a position to pay the percentage demanded by the Association.
2.

The city argues that over the last decade the Association members with the increases

imposed by collective bargaining agreement have earned 14.1 more than the wage they would
have earned if equaled to Consumer Price Index.

The City has been generous, and as a result, the rate of turnover has been low. It has not had

any problem with retention and recruitment of employees. The officers who have gone have not
left because of issues related to wages but on their own accord.
Question 3: Why does the list of comparable matter? Other than population what should
an arbitrator consider when deciding whether a city is comparable to...
