Both national and international experts serve and lead the Arbitration Council Foundation (ACF): ACF Board of Directors, Executive Management Team & International Advisory Board.
The ACF is overseen by a Board of Directors. Three of the Directors are Arbitrators currently serving on the Arbitration Council (one from each of the three arbitrator lists; employer, union and ministry). The other Board members include two external Directors, appointed by a majority vote of all the Arbitrators. A representative of the International Labour Organisation also sits as a non-voting member on the Board.
The Executive Management Team (EMT) of the ACF is comprised of the Executive Director, the Managers of each department and a Technical Advisor. The EMT is responsible for all Arbitration Council and ACF operations outside of the hearing room and Secretariat of the Arbitration Council activities.
An International Advisory Board (IAB) guides and mentors the Arbitration Council Foundation to advance the Arbitration Council’s institutional development. The IAB provides recommendations on complex legal issues, extends fund-raising and networking opportunities with potential partners and assists in providing professional development for all Arbitration Council members and staff of the ACF and Secretariat of the Arbitration Council to maintain international standard services. The IAB currently comprises 5 members renowned for their integrity and extensive experience in industrial relations both nationally and internationally.
