How is an arbitrator selected?


Upon receiving a list of arbitrators from an organization like the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services (FMCS), the employer and the union go through a striking selection process to determine an arbitrator. AAA is a private, non-profit organization that promotes arbitration as a method for settling disputes outside of the courtroom. Many of the collective bargaining agreements reference AAA as the agreed-upon service to supply an arbitrator. FMCS is an independent, federal agency that provides mediation, conflict resolution, training, and arbitration services to the private sector and governmental agencies.
