sources: wild's niederreiter files for arbitration


restricted free agent nino niederreiter has filed for arbitration in advance of wednesday's player-elected arbitration deadline, two sources say.negotiations have begun with niederreiter and they can continue through a potential hearing in front of a neutral arbitrator in toronto later this month or early august.the good news with arbitration is it guarantees no holdout. remember, niederreiter's last contract -- three years, $8 million -- wasn't signed until a little before training camp.the wild will be able to choose a one-year or two-year award in arbitration. he's two years from unrestricted free agency, so i'd assume a one-year award makes the most sense since then his contract wouldn't take him right to the brink of potentially leaving. but, maybe i'm mistaken.again, this is very muc

oak lawn sees potential windfall in house bill that seeks reform of arbitration


"it's all about pensions," he said. "they want to see municipalities fund pensions more."if we were able to get this legislative change, and change the manning for the fire department, we would take those monies into the pension," he said, noting he thinks passage of the proposed arbitration reform bill would likely result in a credit rating upgrade for the village."moody's would look at that and say, 'my goodness, that's a victory for illinois, for oak lawn,'" he said. "so, that's our focus."cole said he's hopeful there will be movement on the arbitration reform bill soon, and declined speculation on why similar bills had failed in the past."i think everything has its time, and i suppose this has, in the past, not been something that the general assembly wanted to act upon," he said."but

you shouldn't have to give up your right to sue to get a job


arbitration can be an effective tool to resolve contract disputes without going to court. but employers shouldn’t be able to force workers into arbitration in contravention of worker protections established in federal laws and regulations, and they certainly shouldn’t make getting a job contingent on giving up the right to seek redress in the courts. unfortunately, both have become regular occurrences, but a case now being briefed before the supreme court can — and should — fix that.the case involves four employees of murphy oil usa, which at the time of the dispute operated gas stations in 22 states (the stations have since been spun off into a unit called murphy usa). when sheila hobson, the main plaintiff, applied for a job at a murphy oil gas station in calera, ala., in 2008, the compa
