Canadian Labour Arbitration Information: Labour Arbitration

What is Labour Arbitration?

Most labour arbitration arises due to a dispute between a union and employer about interpretation or application of the collective agreement at a workplace. When the union and employer cannot resolve a dispute, it can be referred to an Arbitrator. The Arbitrator is often agreed upon by the two parties in the dispute-- the union and the employer. The Arbitrator renders a decision which is binding on the two parties. The decision is also known as “the award” and is usually in writing.

Search the LabourSource database when you want to find “awards” on Arbitration cases. This tutorial will introduce you to searching the database.
