The purpose of this paper is to determine what, if any, particular criteria are currently being used by arbitrators in deciding subcontracting controversies involving labor and management where a contract exists between the parties. The failure of traditional standards in the evaluation of subcontracting controversies has long been evident. The view here taken opposes those standards and indicates that there is a soundly based and readily analyzed common factor, available as a basis for the determination of these disputes.
