Peace Officer Grievance Roster of Arbitrators

Active dates:2020 -

The commissioner of the Bureau of Mediation Services, in consultation with community and law enforcement stakeholders, shall appoint a roster of six persons suited and qualified by training and experience to act as arbitrators for peace officer grievance arbitrations under Minnesota Statutes 626.892. In making these appointments, and as applicable, the commissioner may consider the factors set forth in Minnesota Rules, parts 5530.0600 and 5530.0700, subpart 6, as well as a candidate's familiarity with labor law, the grievance process, and the law enforcement profession; or experience and training in cultural competency, racism, implicit bias, and recognizing and valuing community diversity and cultural differences.


The appointments made by the commissioner are effective immediately upon filing with the secretary of state. Arbitrators on the roster created shall not serve as an arbitrator in a labor arbitration other than a grievance arbitration as defined in this section.

Initial appointments to the roster of arbitrators shall be made as follows: two appointments to expire on the first Monday in January 2023; two appointments to expire on the first Monday in January 2024; and two appointments to expire on the first Monday in January 2025. Subsequent appointments to the roster of arbitrators shall be for three-year terms to expire on the first Monday in January, with the terms of no more than two arbitrators to expire in the same year.

An arbitrator may be reappointed to the roster upon expiration of the arbitrator's term. If the arbitrator is not reappointed, the arbitrator may continue to serve until a successor is appointed, but in no case later than July 1 of the year in which the arbitrator's term expires.
