Arbitrability, Back-To-Work Procedures, Settlement, Labour Dispute, Agreement


The grievance before me arose out of the back-to-work proce­dures followed by the company after the settlement of the labour dispute between the parties which lasted from early January to March 10, 1983. In March the company was still involved in a dispute with its pilots so both parties understood that it would be some time before the company returned to normal operations. On March 10th, following a marathon session, the parties concluded the back-to-work agreement under which the issues before me arise.
