Labor and Labor Practices

Arbitration And Mediation

Employee grievances may be subject to arbitration, depending on the specifics of the labor agreement in force. Arbitrators or panels of arbitrators will hear both sides of the dispute and come to a decision, which is usually binding on the parties. Mediators, however, enter into negotiations with the parties in order to facilitate resolution of the dispute. Two private agencies often used are the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service and the American Arbitration Association.
