Faculty and Summary
Interpreting a contract can provide significant challenges and ambiguities. This webinar will help participants understand the importance of contract language in the arbitration agreement. Discussions will focus on issues such as precedent and past practice, the duty of fair representation, economics, the problems in contract interpretation, and an overview of the process.
An experienced AAA® Labor Arbitrator and two skilled labor professionals will examine the standards of contract interpretation from their perspectives, using case scenarios and other current materials. Attendees will learn to question the contract language and the importance of reviewing the entire grievance file to avoid ambiguous contract language.
The speakers will also cover:
• Identifying and Resolving Ambiguous Contract Language
