1103.11000 – Request for Deferral to Arbitration

Board finds that where conduct is arguably prohibited by the agreement between the parties, the board must defer to arbitration all multiple legal theories arising from that conduct. This ensures that there is one forum for resolution of a dispute, elimination of overlapping and duplicative proceedings, and promotion of more timely resolution of disputes that contribute to employer-employee stability. If a party fails to provide support for its contention that an arbitrator’s remedy can not resolve a derivate violation the board may dismiss that violation and also refer it to arbitration with along with the initial charge.
