Article 3-10.2 |

Demand for Arbitration |

Within fifteen school days after receiving the decision of the Chief Executive Officer or the Director of Employee Engagement or his or her designee, pursuant to Article 3-7 or 3-8, the UNION only may file a demand for arbitration with the Director of Employee Engagement. Within fifteen school days thereafter, the parties will mutually agree to an arbitrator for that grievance, selecting from the permanent panel. If the parties cannot mutually agree upon an arbitrator, then the arbitrator shall be selected through a striking process with the UNION striking first and then the BOARD until one arbitrator remains. Within five school days of selection of an arbitrator, the parties will contact the arbitrator directly and notify the arbitrator of his or her appointment, request available hearing dates and mutually agree to a hearing date. At least seven calendar days before the hearing, the arbitrator shall mail notice of the date, time and place of the hearing to the BOARD and the UNION. The arbitrator for good cause shown may postpone the hearing or extend any period of time upon request of a party or upon his or her own initiative and shall postpone the hearing or extend any period of time upon mutual agreement of the parties.
