The Council has a tripartite structure, which means that it is comprised of 30 Arbitrators nominated in equal proportions by each of the three stakeholder groups: unions, employer associations and the Ministry in charge of Labour.
Each case which is referred to the Arbitration Council is heard by a panel of three arbitrators, two of whom are selected by the parties themselves. The third arbitrator is chosen by the two arbitrators who were selected by the parties (the Chair).
Arbitrators are appointed based on their moral qualities and relevant and extensive work experience. Current members come from a diverse range of employment backgrounds including the law, unions and employer associations, management, academia and the public service.
