Compulsory Arbitration

 

a system of reviewing labor disputes between business owners and workers under which disputes must be taken to specially created compulsory arbitration bodies. Compulsory arbitration exists in certain capitalist countries, for example, Australia and Canada. Its bodies are given broad authority. Their decisions are final, and the parties to the dispute cannot appeal to judicial bodies. In addition, the decisions of compulsory arbitration bodies have the status of labor law, which regulates labor relations. The compulsory arbitration system has been set up with the intent of obstructing the class struggle of the working people, restricting or prohibiting strikes, and imposing unfavorable working conditions.
