BRITISH COLUMBIA
LABOUR RELATIONS BOARD
COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT ARBITRATION BUREAU

Section 86
Failure to appoint arbitration board

On application by either party, where there is failure to appoint or constitute an arbitration board under a collective agreement, the director must make the appointments necessary to constitute an arbitration board. The applicant should provide brief details of the steps taken by the parties to agree on an arbitrator.  Nothing in a collective agreement can be construed as requiring the director to constitute an arbitration board consisting of more thana single arbitrator.

An application under Section 86 of the Code must be submitted on a Request for Appointment form which can be accessed on the LRB website: www.lrb.bc.ca

An application to CAAB can be filed by e-mail (registrar@lrb.bc.ca), mail, fax, or in person. The hours for filing applications with CAAB are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. An application filed after 4:00PM will be treated as filed at 8:00 AM the next business day.
