Being an effective servicing representative includes having swift access to Arbitration Department resources that will help you best serve UAW members and national departments.

With that in mind, we have launched this quarterly e-newsletter that includes valuable resources and current information and developments that will help you in delivering high quality servicing work.

The Arbitration Department can provide you with helpful tools to argue grievances in the lower stages of the procedure by identifying contract language and interpretation trends. The department also can track arbitrators who have a better sense of justice and fairness. This assistance can help increase your value as a resource for local union leadership.


We look forward to informing and educating through this e-newsletter, and we’d like to hear from you. If you have questions, comments or suggestions for future e-newsletter topics, please send them to [email protected].
