Welcome to IBEW LU 520
Arbitrator Selection

In the Arbitration process both parties involved must select an Arbitrator among a pool of individuals who are independent of our industry. They are given a list of names of potential Arbitrators who are available through the  Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) from which to select. The involved parties then must agree upon a selected Arbitrator or reject each name, alternately, until the list of available Arbitrators is exhausted, save the last name who then is named as the Arbitrator for the case.
That selected Arbitrator then determines the final decision on the issues of that case.
