The importance of Collective Bargaining Agreements

The importance of Collective Bargaining Agreements:
Here is that court order vacating the Adrian Peterson arbitration award for the Minnesota Vikings player. The Arbitrator’s decision was overturned by District Court, “The NFLPA argues that the award fails to draw its essence from the CBA because it ignores established law of the shop, namely, that the New Policy may not be retroactively applied. . . . [Arbitrator] Henderson simply disregarded the law of the shop and in doing so failed to meet his duty under the CBA”.
