It is the policy of the state of Minnesota to promote orderly and constructive relationships between labor and management and to avoid unresolved disputes that can be injurious to the public as well as the parties. The use of collective bargaining procedures and binding arbitration to resolve grievances and certain interest disputes between labor and management are encouraged. This chapter shall be liberally construed to effectuate these policies and the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, chapters 179 and 179A.
