This study investigates the effect of the gender of grievants on the decisions of arbitrators in 104 discharge cases. The results indicate that, other things equal, women were twice as likely as men to have their grievance sustained; in cases where the grievance was sustained, women were 2.7 times more likely than men to receive a full reinstatement rather than a partial reinstatement; and in cases where suspension was imposed in place of discharge, women received, on average, a suspension 2.1 months shorter than men. These results are consistent with those of studies of the treatment of women in the criminal justice system.
