Before examining the various alternatives used to resolve public sector labor disputes, it seems sensible to set forth explicitly some of the underlying value judgments that, in effect, provide the framework within which we choose among these alternatives. Then, subsequent sections of this paper will briefly summarize bargaining systems, describe the tools for dispute resolution, examine the evolution of dispute settlement techniques in various segments of the public sector, and evaluate how these tools are working.
