OPSEU/SEFPO Region 2 is offering a Week-long Arbitration course.
The Arbitration Process
After the grievance procedure has been exhausted, an unresolved grievance can be referred to the last stage to be decided at Arbitration. This Course is intended to inform Local Union activists regarding various elements of the process at an Arbitration Hearing in order to fully appreciate what occurs during the grievance procedure, and how it affects the final outcome.
Those selected for this Course will engage in a mixture of lecture-style review as well as role-play exercises. All the basic elements of what happens at a Hearing will be reviewed.
This Course is intended for Local Union Officers and Stewards who have taken Grievance Handling courses, and have extensive grievance handling experience up to the final stages of the grievance procedure. Having previously attended at Arbitration Hearings and/or Mediation would be an asset.
Participants will be selected by the Education Committee from the applicants.
