Authority of the Arbitrator Sample Clauses

Authority of the Arbitrator i. It is the intent of both parties to this Collective Agreement that no grievance shall be defeated merely because of a technical error in processing the grievance through the grievance procedure. To this end an arbitrator shall have the power to allow all necessary amendments to the grievance and the power to waive formal procedural irregularities in the processing of a grievance in order to determine the real matter in dispute and to render a decision according to equitable principles and the justice of the case.
Authority of the Arbitrator. (1) The arbitrator shall neither add to, subtract from, modify or alter the terms or provisions of this Agreement. Arbitration shall be confined solely to the application and/or interpretation of this Agreement and the precise issue(s) submitted for arbitration. The arbitrator shall have no authority to determine any other issue(s). The arbitrator shall refrain from issuing any statements of opinion or conclusions not essential to the determination of the issue(s) submitted.

The arbitrator shall confine the decision solely to the application or interpretation of the express terms of the Agreement. Where provisions of the Agreement call for the exercise of academic judgment, the arbitrator shall not have the authority to substitute her/his judgment for that of the official making such judgment, but shall be confined to whether the procedural steps have been followed. If the arbitrator finds that the procedural steps have not been followed, and that the procedural error was substantially prejudicial to the substantive decision with respect to the grievant, the arbitrator shall remand the case to the decision level where the error occurred for reevaluation and may extend an appointment not to exceed one year. In no case, shall the arbitrator have the authority to grant a remedy which includes an appointment of greater than one year or has the effect of granting retention, promotion, or tenure. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties to the extent permitted by provisions of this Agreement and applicable law.
Authority of the Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall be authorized to rule and issue a decision in writing on the issue presented for arbitration, which decision shall be final and binding on both parties.

Authority of the Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall neither add to, subtract from, modify, nor alter the terms or provisions of this Agreement. The arbitrator shall refrain from issuing any statement, opinion, or conclusions not essential to determination of the issue submitted. Except as otherwise provided in this Article, the arbitrator shall have no authority to hear or decide any issue or grievance contesting an "academic judgment" as defined in Division B, Section 3 (GRIEVANCES) of this Article. In cases involving "academic judgment" involving the exercise of discretion, the arbitrator shall not substitute his/her judgment for that of the faculty or the administrator. Nor shall the arbitrator review such decision except for the purpose of determining whether the provisions of this Agreement have been followed. If the arbitrator determines that procedural steps have not been followed where an exercise of "academic judgment" is involved, the arbitrator shall remand the matter to the appropriate official or body to be reconsidered in accordance with the relevant procedures. In such case, the arbitrator may not direct that a bargaining unit member be reappointed, promoted, or awarded indefinite tenure. The arbitrator, however, may direct that the status quo ante be maintained until a judgment is made having properly followed appropriate procedural steps. The arbitrator shall have no authority to determine whether Article 13, Nondiscrimination, has been violated, except with respect to claims alleging discrimination on the basis of Association activity. Other grievances alleging violation of that provision may be taken only through the pre-arbitration levels of the grievance procedure. Nothing in this Agreement precludes employees from filing or pursuing, at any time, claims alleging violations of state or federal non-discrimination laws with outside agencies (e.g. the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) or courts. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award monetary penalties or damages. The arbitrator shall have the authority to make the bargaining unit member whole, but does not have the authority to direct that a bargaining unit member be reappointed, promoted, or awarded indefinite tenure.
