Equitable Res., Inc. v. United Steel, Paper & Forestry, Rubber, Mfg., etc., 08-6444

By FindLaw Staff on September 17, 2010 11:06 AM

Equitable Res., Inc. v. United Steel, Paper & Forestry, Rubber, Mfg., etc., 08-6444, concerned a challenge to the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of a union, in a company's suit under section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA) to vacate or modify the arbitration award against it.  In affirming, the court held that the arbitrator did not exceed his authority by interpreting the CBA in a way that allowed the company to be found liable for a breach.  Also, the arbitrator did not exceed the scope of his authority to decide a representational issue in this case because the arbitrator's successor decision was permissible in furtherance of his interpretation of the CBA.  Lastly, the award's remedy does not violate public policy; and 4) the arbitrator did not dispense his own brand of industrial justice.
