1102.01000 – Pre-Arbitration

Employer motion to defer case to arbitration properly was denied when the employer failed to reply to ALJ's request to demonstrate that the agreement between the parties provided for binding arbitration, that the issues raised by the unfair practice charge are covered by the agreement and that the issues raised by the charge will be heard by an arbitrator on the merits.
