The California State Mediation and Conciliation Service publicizes fact-finding reports that have become public, and I’ve added links to a couple of my published reports on my Published Decisions page. Fact-finding reports differ from arbitration decisions. They are essentially recommended settlements for collective bargaining agreements that have gone to impasse, and the recommendations are often used by the parties to reach agreement and avoid a strike. If the parties don’t reach agreement within 10 days, the reports become public.
Just a reminder that I will be speaking at the Labor Arbitration Institute on June 18 and 19. You can still register at www.laborarb.com. Please join me!
I am heading back to Las Vegas to join the faculty of the Labor Arbitration Institute for their annual Labor Law and Labor Arbitration training on June 18-19, 2018. I will be on several multi-arbitrator panels and will present on the thorny topics of Insubordination and Job Performance. This training is praised by participants and faculty alike. You can find out more at www.laborarb.com. I hope to see you there!
