This is a guide for shippers and railways that are involved in level of service arbitration. It explains what happens if the shipper submits an issue for arbitration that the railway believes is not eligible. The guide explains:

  • the railway's right to formally object to including the issue in the arbitration;

  • the process the CTA uses to consider objections, including the possibility that it would hold a hearing with the shipper and the railway (and other witnesses if needed); and
  • the documents or information the shipper and railway would have to provide during the process, and the deadlines for providing them.
