Arbitration Case Files [series]

The Arbitration Case Files contain a non-random sample of a twenty-five linear foot series in the original accession. The files selected document the arbitration cases which were published, thus ensuring that the parties do not expect the complete confidentiality of the record of the arbitration proceedings. There are three cases represented here: a 1970 case between the City of Birmingham (Michigan) and the City of Birmingham Firefighters, a 1985 grievance by UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) Local 876 against Kroger, and the Wayne State Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) grievance against Wayne State University in 1975.

Box   1  
City of Birmingham and City of Birmingham Firefighters 1970

In the Birmingham Firefighters proceedings, St. Antoine arbitrated the reasonable settlement of disputes about the new contract between the firefighters and the city. The primary contentious issues were whether or not to institute an agency shop, and whether arbitration should be the final recourse for the resolution of grievances (rather than the city commission, which was assumed to have an obvious bias.) In St. Antoine's decision, he found the agency shop unnecessary, but instituted the final arbitration clause.

Box   1  
Kroger and UFCW Local 876 1985

The grievance of UFCW Local 876 against Kroger was that the labor contract mandated the store be closed on New Years' Day, yet Kroger remained open in 1985 in response to the same action by competitors, which the company claimed was contractually allowed. St. Antoine found for the union.

Box   1  
Wayne State University and Wayne State Chapter, American Association of University Professors 1975

The AAUP case concerned a member of the Wayne State University faculty who was denied tenure. The grievant claimed that his tenure was guaranteed him when he was hired by the university. St. Antoine found for the university.

 
Articles, Speeches, Appearances and Conferences [series]

The series Articles, Speeches, Appearances and Conferences contains files of St. Antoine's writings and conference correspondence from two accessions--one from 1988, (the bulk of this accession otherwise remains in the Law School record group, and pertains to St. Antoine's duties as dean), and one from 1999. The earlier accession contains files for the years 1967 through 1978, and are arranged chronologically. The files from the 1999 accession were split into two groups--By Title or Subject and By Conference or Venue. All of the writings found here were the result of St. Antoine's participation in conferences, or appearance at other functions, though not all of the files of the various conferences contain any writings. The writings are represented variously by rough notes, outlines, typed manuscripts, or published proceedings or law review reprints.
