Employee Grievance relating to long-term disability payments.
At the outset of the hearing counsel agreed that I am properly seised of this matter and could proceed as a single arbitrator notwithstanding the fact that art. IX, s. 4, Step 4 of the collective agreement calls for an arbitration board. It was agreed that any objection to a failure to comply with the requirements of the collective agreement in respect of my selection and proceeding as a single arbitrator would be waived.
