NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement

Article 44
Injury Grievance

Section 16
Grievance Settlement Committee

A grievance settlement committee consisting of representatives of the NFLPA and representatives of the NFL shall meet annually between the end of the regular season and the annual arbitration scheduling conference. The committee shall engage in good faith efforts to settle or bifurcate any pending Injury Grievances. No evidence will be taken at such meetings, except parties involved in the grievance may be contacted to obtain information about their dispute. If the committee resolves any grievance by mutual agreement of its members, such resolution will be made in writing and will constitute full, final and complete disposition of the grievance and will be binding upon the player(s) and the Club(s) involved and the parties to this Agreement.
