There’s a lot at stake when a grievance goes to arbitration, both for individual union members and for the contract itself. That’s why as the final step in the process, arbitration requires thoughtful analysis and preparation as well as careful attention to detail.
Taught by attorney and veteran arbitrator Lou Zigman, this fast-paced, informative and enjoyable two-Saturday class teaches union stewards, staff officers and activists – as well as management professionals – the basics of arbitration, including a step by step approach to making the case.
