Exceptions to the general rule that only the union or the employer may demand that an issue be submitted to arbitration
Sossous v Herricks Union Free Sch. Dist., 2016 NY Slip Op 05924, Appellate Division, Second Department
The Sossous decision by the Appellate Division sets out another exception to the general rule.
The Appellate Division vacated the lower court’s ruling explaining that “under the circumstances of this case, the parties charted their own procedural course by entering into a settlement agreement providing that the arbitrator would retain jurisdiction to resolve ‘any dispute that may arise concerning this settlement agreement.’"
