Nat'l. Postal Mail Handlers Union v. Am. Postal Wkrs. Union, No. 08-5467

By FindLaw Staff on December 18, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an action to overturn an arbitral award in a dispute over which union was entitled to perform certain work at a U.S. Postal Service facility, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where, in light of the deference courts must afford to a labor arbitrator's contract interpretation (including an arbitrator's decision on arbitrability where, as here, the parties agreed to present that issue to the arbitrator) the court was required to uphold the arbitrator's decision in this case.
