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.
