National Elevator Bargaining Assoc. v. International Union of Elevator Constructors, No. 18-1584 (8th Cir. 2019)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit reversed the district court's order vacating an arbitration award originally in favor of the union. The court held that the arbitration award drew its essence from the collective bargaining agreement. In this case, the arbitrator appropriately considered the relevant language of the Recognition Clause, even though it did not quote the Recognition Clause in its entirety. Accordingly, the court remanded for further proceedings.
