Annotation: Even though in recent years the South and Southwest have experienced a rise in industrialization and labor organization, the rate of work stoppages, dispute mediation cases, and closed arbitration awards has lagged behind other regions of the United States.
Abstract: Regional differences are evident in the conduct of dispute parties in arbitration cases. These differences include a lower level or lack of arbitration experience, an adherence to a genteel style of behavior, and the existence of employer-employee social relationships. The author's experiences as an arbitrator highlight his views on these regional differences. Seven footnotes are given.
