Quarterly Arbitration Assessment March 2017


Brothers and Sisters,

Arbitration, the ability to arbitrate, and the means to arbitrate are vital tools in the Union's arsenal of defense and quality representation of its MEMBERS.  Arbitration is one of the two strongest stances a Union may take in any disagreement or dispute.  Arbitration may be invoked in a wide range of labor/worker issues - contract interpretations, unfair labor practices, and most common are unfair, unreasonable, unjust discipline and termination.

Although arbitration is a powerful ally in Our fight, arbitration is an expensive procedure and a costly process to all Unions.

Our Quarterly Arbitration Expenses Total was $34,294.47 divided by 2448 active members equal $14.00 per member in March 2017.

In Solidarity.
