Labor Arbitration

  • Labor arbitration is an informal adjudicative process in which labor and management empower an Arbitrator to issue a final and binding award based on evidence submitted in a hearing. The authority for appointment as a labor arbitrator arises from the collective bargaining agreement.
  • Rocco Scanza and Richard Fincher are nationally recognized labor arbitrators and serve on numerous labor panels.
  • Over the past five years, Richard Fincher has arbitrated over 100 grievances, and serves on rosters of the FMCS, the American Arbitration Association, and the National Mediation Board. He has been selected for several permanent rosters, including the Social Security Administration, Qwest-CWA, Union Pacific Railroad and TWU, and Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and AFGE, and Clark County, Nevada and SIEU. In 2005, he was selected an “Advanced Practitioner in Labor and Employment Arbitration” by the Association for Conflict Resolution. In 2007, he was selected to serve on the national railroad roster of the Union Pacific Railroad and the ACTU.
