Labor arbitrators work as solo practitioners, appointed to hear grievance disputes that arise under collective bargaining agreements. One significant problem that arises is the available of experienced arbitrators to hear disputes expeditiously. In this article, Dean Abrams and Professor Nolan suggest an alternative form for the delivery of arbitration services through use of an arbitration firm that would address the issue of delay. A number of experienced arbitrators would join together in a partnership. Parties seeking arbitration services would contract with the firm, and arbitrators would be assigned to hear cases based on their availability.
