Local Joint Adjustment Board (LJAB) Training will take place immediately follow the Council meeting. This training provides valuable instruction and training on how to conduct a LJAB hearing and ensures that chapters and LJAB contractor panelists have the information and resources necessary to meet that challenge. The program focuses on conducting a proper LJAB hearing, handling common procedural objections, creating a good record in cases of deadlock, and maintaining arbitration immunity. This program is offered free of charge.
