Springfield Township School District Collective Bargaining Agreement


McKeesport Area School District, 585 A.2d to 546.   Like the agreement in the McKeesport Area School District, the CBA here does not define the “just cause”;  So it was in the province of the arbitrator to make sense of that sentence, which is exactly what the arbitrator did here.   Since KBA has not defined “reasonably” under the “rules of conduct,” the arbitrator is also free to make sense of this notion. At AFSCME, a municipal employee was dismissed because he was drunk during the service and was asleep, a subordinate and not doing his assigned work.   The union representing the employee mourned the discharge.   The arbitrator ordered the reinstatement of the employee and did everything for all unpaid wages and benefits.   The city appealed and the Court of Common Pleas overturned the sentence.   The union appealed to the court, which revoked the court order and reinstated the arbitrator`s sentence.   The court explained to the arbitrator whether the city employee had been dismissed without physical cause.

  The Court of Justice found that “[d] it does not contain a definition of `just cause`, as in other collective agreements.” AFSCME, 568 A.2d to 1355.   The court then concluded that “it was not patently unreasonable for the arbitrator to conclude that there was no right reason, especially since the parties did not define the right cause in the agreement.  AFSCME, 568 A.2d to 1356.   Again, the parties to the CBA did not define a “just cause”;  As a result, the arbitrator was free to see that Mr. Mack`s conduct, even though, as the borough asserted, was not “just a reason” to dismiss him.  The limitation of the review of an arbitral award by an appel giving court in the context of an appeal arbitration proceeding such as this is the “essential test” and the corresponding investigation is whether the arbitration award can be inferred in any way from the collective agreement with respect to the agreement, its language, its context and all other indications of the parties` intent.   Leechburg Area School District v. Dale, 492 Pa.

515, 424 A.2d 1309 (1981). Randolph Mack was the supervisor of a school in the Springfield Township School District(District).   On June 7, 1995, the District terminated Mr. Mack`s hiring as a director.   The resignation triggered this case. An important part of deciding on a new career is taking into account the benefits you can enjoy of a job. We offer our full-time and part-time employees an excellent choice of benefits in a wide range of areas that depend on the position agreement, including, but not only: this is the case because the main test requires that an arbitration award be upheld if it can be reasonably deducted from the collective agreement taking into account language. Context and other indications of the parties` intent. Pennsylvania State Education Association v. Appalachia Intermediate Unit 08, 505 Pa. 1, 5, 476 A.2d 360, 362 (1984).

  In light of the CBA`s silence on what constitutes “reasonable” and “just cause” rules of conduct, we must conclude that the arbitrator`s determination of adequacy and just cause and the resulting award of arbitration in this case could be rationally deducted from the CBA. Accordingly, we agree with the association that the court found an error in finding that the arbitrator`s award does not infer its essence from the CBA.
