Program Description:

Interpreting the contract often provides great challenges and ambiguities. This webinar is designed to help the participant understand the importance of contract language in the arbitration agreement. Discussions will focus on issues such as precedent and past practice, politics, duty of fair representation, economics, standards of discipline, the problems in contract interpretation as well as an overview of the arbitration process. Attendees will learn to question the contract language and the importance of reviewing the entire grievance file to avoid ambiguous contract language. Experienced AAA Labor Arbitrators will examine the standards of contract interpretation from their perspectives, contract interpretation aids, and the role of the Arbitrator in interpreting contact language, using case scenarios and other current materials.
