Int'l Bhd. of Elec. Workers v. Exelon Corp., 05-4175

In a suit by a union challenging an arbitral award in favor of an employer stating that the employer did not violate the terms of a collective bargaining agreement by instituting an automated system to summon workers to respond to an electrical outage, dismissal of the suit is affirmed over plaintiff's arguments that: 1) the arbitrator evidenced manifest disregard for the law; 2) the arbitrator exceeded the scope of his authority; and 3) the arbitration award was against public policy.
