PLEASE HELP

1. AT MY ARBITRATION HEARING THE USPS
TOLD THE ARBITRATOR HE DID NOT HAVE JURISDICTION IN THIS FMLA PROBLEM. I AM READING RULINGS THAT SAY THE COURTS LIKE THE HELP OF ARBITRATORS AND HAVE SEEN HUNDREDS OF RULINGS MADE BY ARBITRATORS CONCERNING FMLA. THE MAILHANDLERS UNION LOOKED SHOCKED AND WERE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS LINE OF ATTACK RESULTING IN AN EXTENSION OF 60 DAYS WHILE BOTH SIDES FILE BRIEFS TO THE ARBITRATOR SO HE CAN DETERMINE IF HE CAN HEAR THE CASE.

Union contract

If the union contract has an agreement or language about the FMLA, the arbitrator should have the right to make a ruling. Is a union attorney representing you? If not, ask for one.
