01-01-15Labor arbitrator’s award finding that employees working on New Year’s Day were entitled to triple pay, rather than double pay as claimed by employer, was upheld even though, in subsequent decision under same contract, same arbitrator ruled that employees of another employer were entitled to only double pay; subsequent ruling was based on new evidence of intent, and arbitrator’s ruling awarding triple pay was supported by contract and by evidence presented to arbitrator at time of his decision.
