I want to share this article How to Win An Arbitration with advocates on both sides of the table. It has a lot of great points that I wish advocates understood. It’s written by a commercial arbitrator and former judge so not every part of it applies to every case, but it highlights the preparedness and efficiency that most labor arbitrators hope to see in a case. I hope you find it useful.
And a quick plug: Consider getting my book The Beginner’s Guide to Labor Arbitration Practice for your staff as a holiday gift. It’s not just for beginners! As with the article above, I have tried to convey in a straightforward and funny way how to evaluate and present grievances at arbitration. If you’d like to buy the book in bulk, contact me directly. I am more than happy to offer a bulk discount.
Happy holidays and have a wonderful new year!
