When determining the grievance by arbitration, the arbitrator may establish or limit the nature and extent and form of the evidence and may impose such conditions, as they consider appropriate. The arbitrator shall give a succinct decision within seven (7) calendar days after completing proceedings, unless the parties agree otherwise.
