Procedure for Arbitration (1) The parties hereby agree that any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement, or breach of this Agreement, including disputes concerning termination of this Agreement, shall be settled by arbitration in San Mateo, California. This agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable. Judgment upon any award rendered by an arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Step Four - Arbitration 2515 In the event the grievance remains unresolved, the grieving party, through the Union Business Representative, may appeal the grievance to arbitration. Written notice of such appeal must be sent by certified mail to the Manager of Labor Relations/or designee within fifteen (15) workdays after receipt of the Step Three response. No grievance shall be appealed to arbitration without first being processed through the appropriate steps of the Grievance Procedure. 2516 An impartial Arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of the parties. In the event mutual agreement is not reached, the party appealing the grievance to arbitration shall request a panel of arbitrators from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Upon receipt of said panel, the parties will select an arbitrator by alternately striking names. 2517 The Arbitrator shall be prohibited from adding to, modifying or subtracting from the terms of this Agreement or any supplemental written agreement of the parties. Further, it shall not be within the jurisdiction of the Arbitrator to change any existing wage rate or establish a new wage rate. However, grievances involving reclassification are within the scope of the Arbitrator; the decision of the Arbitrator, however, is limited to change in the classification of a position with accompanying wage schedule. 2518 The award of the Arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties. Each party shall pay one half (½) the cost of the arbitration proceedings and each party shall be responsible for the cost of its own representatives and witnesses. There shall be no interruptions of work by the Employer or employee(s) pending an Arbitrator's award.
Level Four - Arbitration If the grievant is not satisfied with the decision at Level Three, within ten (10) calendar days after receipt of the Board's response at Level Three, the grievance may be appealed to arbitration by the Association. 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. The arbitrator selected will hold a hearing promptly and will issue a decision not later than thirty (30) days from the date of the close of the hearing. The arbitrator's decision will be in writing and will set forth his/her findings of fact, reasoning and conclusions on the issues submitted to the Board and the Association and will be final and binding upon the parties. The arbitrator shall not add to, subtract from, modify, or amend any terms of this Agreement. The arbitrator shall have no power to substitute his/her discretion for that of the Board in any manner not specifically contracted away by the Board. The decision of the arbitrator within the scope of his/her authority shall be binding on the parties. The costs for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses, if any, and travel and subsistence expenses and the cost of any hearing room will be borne equally by the Board and the Association. All other costs will be borne by the party incurring them.
Matters for Arbitration Except for matters of indemnity or in the case of urgency to prevent material harm to a substantive right or asset, the Parties agree that all questions or matters in dispute with respect to this Agreement shall be submitted to arbitration pursuant to the terms hereof. This provision shall not prejudice a Party from seeking a Court order or assistance to garnish or secure sums or to seek summary remedy for such matters as counsel may consider amenable to summary proceedings.
Step 4 - Arbitration If the grievance is not settled on the basis of the foregoing procedures, the Association may submit the issue in writing to final and binding arbitration within ten (10) calendar days following receipt of the Medical Center Chief Administrative Officer or designee’s response. Within ten (10) calendar days of the notification that the dispute is submitted for arbitration, the Association shall request the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service to supply a list of eleven (11) arbitrators from Washington and Oregon and the parties shall alternate in striking names from such list until the name of one (1) arbitrator remains who shall be the arbitrator. The party to strike the first name shall be determined by coin toss. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding, subject to limits of authority stated herein. The arbitrator shall have no authority or power to add to, delete from, disregard, or alter any of the provisions of this Agreement, but shall be authorized only to interpret the existing provisions of this Agreement as they may apply to the specific facts of the issue in dispute. The arbitrator shall base his or her decision solely on the contractual obligations expressed in this Agreement. If the arbitrator should find that the Employer was not prohibited by this Agreement from taking, or not taking, the action grieved, he or she shall have no authority to change or restrict the Employer’s action. The arbitrator shall not reverse the Employer’s exercise of discretion in any particular instance and substitute his or her own judgment or determination for that of the Employer. If a nurse feels the Employer’s determination is based upon bad faith, is arbitrary and capricious, is based on irrelevant information or favoritism, the nurse shall have recourse to the grievance procedure. Any dispute as to procedure shall be heard and decided by the arbitrator in a separate proceeding prior to any hearing on the merits. Any dismissal of a grievance by the arbitrator, whether on the merits or on procedural grounds, shall bar any further arbitration. Each party shall bear one half (½) of the fee of the arbitrator and any other expense jointly incurred by mutual agreement incident to the arbitration hearing. All other expenses, including any costs or attorneys’ fees, shall be borne by the party incurring them, and neither party shall be responsible for the expenses of witnesses called by the other party.
Request for Arbitration Either party may request such arbitration. Stanford and ***** will mutually agree in writing on a third-party arbitrator within 30 days of the arbitration request. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and nonappealable and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
Demand for Arbitration (a) At any time after the first to occur of (i) the date of the meeting actually held pursuant to the applicable Escalation Notice or (ii) 45 days after the delivery of an Escalation Notice (as applicable, the "Arbitration Demand Date"), any party involved in the dispute, controversy or claim (regardless of whether such party delivered the Escalation Notice) may, unless the Applicable Deadline has occurred, make a written demand (the "Arbitration Demand Notice") that the dispute be resolved by binding arbitration, which Arbitration Demand Notice shall be given to the parties to the dispute, controversy or claim in the manner set forth in Section 11.5. In the event that any party shall deliver an Arbitration Demand Notice to another party, such other party may itself deliver an Arbitration Demand Notice to such first party with respect to any related dispute, controversy or claim with respect to which the Applicable Deadline has not passed without the requirement of delivering an Escalation Notice. No party may assert that the failure to resolve any matter during any discussions or negotiations, the course of conduct during the discussions or negotiations or the failure to agree on a mutually acceptable time, agenda, location or procedures for the meeting, in each case, as contemplated by Section 8.2, is a prerequisite to a demand for arbitration under Section 8.3.
