Referral to Arbitration

When a grievance is denied at the final stage of the grievance process, and the Grievance Committee decides to refer the grievance to arbitration, the Labour Relations Representative responsible will advise whether or not the case should be heard by an arbitrator. The process of selecting an arbitrator can be lengthy, as it is important to find a person best suited to the case. Once an arbitrator is selected, it may be some time before the date is set. The lawyer presenting the case will depend on the Grievance Committee to provide the necessary information to fully present the case.
