Arbitration: To Go or Not to Go

Course Code : 3TOGO

Participants will learn the law with respect to duty of fair representation obligations, as well as the standard arbitral legal tests in relation to discipline, contract interpretation, and evidence. There will also be a legal research component, which will focus on locating the law and conducting efficient legal research. Participants will present an overview of a grievance with recommendations on whether to proceed to arbitration.

Taught by both counsel and arbitrators, this course will provide the legal knowledge required for unions to determine what the critical issues are in individual grievances and to make informed decisions regarding the progress of grievances. One of the most difficult issues facing unions is whether to advance grievances to arbitration. It can be a legal minefield.

Participants should have some experience in the arbitral referral process. A basic arbitration course is recommended. This course does not focus on preparation or presentation of a labour arbitration case. Participants wanting arbitration skills should take a Labour Arbitration Level 1 or 2 course.
