1102.02000 – Post Arbitration; Repugnancy
The possibility that the Board may reach a different result does not render the arbitrator's award unreasonable or repugnant. The Board adopts the NLRB standard for post-arbitration deferral. The award is not repugnant if the unfair practice issue is "parallel" to the contractual issue, the arbitrator considered all of the evidence relevant to the unfair practice charge; the award is not clearly repugnant or palpably wrong.
