Abstract

A model is proposed to explain rights arbitrator willingness to accept interest arbitration cases. Findings suggest that rights arbitrators are more likely to accept interest arbitration cases if they are younger, they are not a NAA member, they have strong beliefs in their ability to render interest arbitration decisions, and they have more experience handling interest arbitration cases. The proposed model accounted for just under half the variance (Adjusted R2=0.48) in rights arbitrator willingness to accept interest arbitration cases. Study limitations and suggestions for future research are discussed.
