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.

  • Richard Fincher is a nationally recognized labor arbitrator and serves on numerous labor panels, including the FMCS, the American Arbitration Association, and the National Mediation Board. Over the past five years, he has arbitrated over 100 labor grievances. In 2005, he was selected an “Advanced Practitioner in Labor and Employment Arbitration” by the Association for Conflict Resolution.

The process assumes that mutual gains are possible, that solutions which satisfy mutual interests are more durable, and that parties should help each other achieve a positive result.
