Past Arbitrations

Past Arbitrations

The Evanston Fire Department and The Evanston Fire Fighters Association Local 742 have encountered many issues that had to be settled by means of an Arbitration Committee.  We have posted a few recent decisions in hopes of assisting other local's encountering some of the same issues.  It is our hope that others can learn from our past encounters and avoid similar situations from occurring in their community.

There are thousands of documents of arbitration decisions in our possession, and obviously not all of them will be available on-line.  However, past arbitration decisions can be made available if requested.  Just contact us on the feedback page, or E-mail one of the Executive Board Members.  Here are decisions from March 1988 through January 1994.
