Although labor historians are familiar with the momentous 1959 steel strike, many don’t realize that it was prompted by the steel companies’ reaction to a ruling by an arbitrator, Sylvester Garrett, and that the long strike was resolved, in part, by another arbitrator, George W Taylor. Even fewer are aware of the ways in which Taylor, Garrett, John Dunlop, David Cole, and Marvin Miller helped restructure negotiations between the United Steelworkers and the steel companies to prevent another huge strike. Their work climaxed with the adoption of the Experimental Negotiations Agreement of 1972, which allowed arbitrators to decide terms if the union and corporate leaders could not agree on their next contract.
