Now we’re having a Q & A period. If you missed our arbitration webinar, you can see a recording in a few days (AAUP member login required).
Right now we’re discussing what happens after the arbitration hearing is held.
Lots of info on the conduct of arbitration hearings: rules of evidence, burden of proof, witnesses, cross examination.
Preparing for arbitration hearing: investigate, have a game plan, witness prep, and provide information to membership.
Now discussing the process for invoking arbitration.
There are lots of criteria for invoking arbitration, including merits, how many are affected, the severity of the problem, and others.
Who decides whether to arbitrate?
Average time during arbitration from invocation to issuance of award: 333.12 days. It sounds long but it’s shorter than litigation.
Average costs of arbitration: arbitrators’ per diem rate: $1,023.62; arbitrators’ total bill: $4,911.86.
Right now we’re discussing the differences between arbitration and litigation in today’s AAUP-CBC webinar.
Our webinar presenter is Michael Mauer, Esq., senior labor advisor for AAUP, who will be talking today about grievance arbitration.
Starting now–AAUP-CBC webinar “Arbitration: The End of the Line”
