ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decision taken in the court case related to the arbitrability in discontinuance of Christmas gift practice. Under a collective bargaining agreement providing for arbitration of grievances involving the 'interpretation or application' of the provisions of the agreement, the employer was not obligated to arbitrate a dispute arising out of its decision to discontinue the distribution of Christmas turkeys. The collective bargaining agreement was intended to limit the scope of the arbitrable matter.
