Each party will give written notice (a “Notice of Dispute”) to the others of any Dispute claimed by it within thirty (30) days of learning of the cause of such a Dispute. The Notice of Dispute will include a reasonable description of the basis of the Dispute, including, without limitation, (i) the specific charge or charges being disputed, (ii) if available and/or applicable, the supporting documentation that is reasonably required for verification of the charge or charges, and (iii) any amounts being withheld.

Any Dispute that remains unresolved for more than twenty (20) days after the receipt of a Notice of Dispute shall be referred to designated representatives of the parties hereto who shall negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute (the “Resolution Forum”). If a Dispute is not resolved in the Resolution Forum, the Dispute shall be submitted to the consideration of a representative from the senior management of EVERTEC who shall be identified in a written notice delivered to the Popular Parties from time to time, the Chief Operating Officer, the Chief Financial Officer or the Chief Information Officer of BPPR and the Chief Operating Officer or the Chief Financial Officer of Popular.

The arbitration will be governed by the United States Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 to the exclusion of any provision of state law inconsistent therewith or which would produce a different result. A panel of three neutral arbitrators will determine the Dispute of the parties and render a final award in accordance with the applicable substantive law. If the Dispute is between EVERTEC, on the one hand, and one or both of the Popular Parties and their respective Subsidiaries, on the other hand, each of EVERTEC and the Popular Parties shall select one neutral arbitrator and, unless those parties agree on a third neutral arbitrator, such two arbitrators shall select the third arbitrator (subject to such limitations, if any, mutually agreed by those parties). If the Dispute is between the Popular Parties, than each of the Popular Parties shall select one neutral arbitrator and, unless those parties agree on a third neutral arbitrator, such two arbitrators shall select the third arbitrator (subject to such limitations, if any, mutually agreed by those parties). Strict confidentiality will govern the arbitration proceedings, including all information submitted to the arbitrator and the decision or award entered by the arbitrator. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator. The terms hereof will not limit any obligation of a party to defend, indemnify or hold harmless another party against court proceedings or other Losses. The procedures specified in this section will be the sole and exclusive procedures for the resolution of Disputes among the parties arising out of or relating to this Master Agreement; provided, however, that a party may request temporary remedies in a court of law to maintain the status quo or to protect goods or property until the arbitration has initiated and the selected arbitrator has had the opportunity to resolve the request for temporary relief. Each party is required to continue to perform its obligations under this Master Agreement pending final resolution of any Dispute arising out of or relating to this Master Agreement, unless to do so would be impossible or impracticable under the circumstances.

Within ten (10) calendar days after such written notice of the appeal to arbitration, the Superintendent and the Association will attempt to agree upon a mutually acceptable arbitrator and to obtain a commitment from such arbitrator to serve. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator or to obtain such a commitment within the ten (10) day period, a request for a list of seven (7) arbitrators may be made to the Oregon Employment Relations Board by either party. The parties may mutually agree to request arbitrators who reside or maintain an office in Oregon. The parties will then be bound by the AAA Rules in the selection of an arbitrator.
