  American Arbitration Association - Labor-Management
When an arbitrator is serving concurrently as an advocate for or representative of other companies or unions in labor relations matters, or has done so in recent years, he or she must disclose such activities before accepting appointment as an arbitrator.
If an arbitrator is unable, because of time limitations or other reasons, to handle all decision-making aspects of a case, it is not a violation of professional responsibility to suggest to the parties an allocation of responsibility between the arbitrator and an assistant or associate.
Arbitrators should recognize that the primary responsibility of an administrative agency is to serve the parties.

 AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION DECISION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Susan Pearson, the Associate Provost for Faculty Relations and Budget, testified that she was the principle negotiator for the University following the Union's election of a representative in 1989 [Tr.38-39].
Associate Provost Pearson's testimony was certainly the most credible (in fact the only testimony and evidence) concerning the initial negotiation of the language of Article 31, the limitation on arbitration.
Fourth, there was evidence presented at the arbitration that other protected groups on the campus, women, minorities and disabled students, have various service offices that aid and protect their interests at the University, yet the University does not charge a fee to students who use those organizations.

The Arbitrator adopts this test up to a point, with the caveat that the party proposing the change has the burden of proof, rather than both parties having the burden of proof, as was stipulated by Arbitrator Torosian in his initial formulation of the test.
The Arbitrator rejects this argument by the City, in that had the Legislature intended for arbitrator to defer to elected officials they would have clearly reflected that intention in the language employed in the ORS 243.746(4), or simply eliminated the requirement for Interest Arbitration and allowed City officials to unilaterally set wages and working conditions.
The Arbitrator's interest, after reviewing the merits of the case, is in leaving the parties in a status quo position with reference to the language of Article 21, and the Arbitrator must therefore determine which proposed language modifications, those of the Association or those of the City, satisfy this intention.

The second phase of the arbitration, which will consider issues of damages and perhaps the exemption of Reliable, will take place at some time after 1 April 1999.
