LUZON DEVELOPMENT BANK vs ASSOCIATION OF LDB EMPLOYEESFACTS: Luzon Development Bank (LDB) allegedly violated its Collective Bargaining Agreement withthe Association of LDB Employees (ALDBE). They agreed to submit their respective Position Papersbefore a Voluntary Arbitrator but LDB failed to do so. The Voluntary Arbitrator rendered a decision infavor of ALDBE. Thus this petition for certiorari directly to the SC.ISSUE: Whether a petition directly to the Supreme Court was properHELD: The SC remanded the case to the CA. The voluntary arbitrator, whether acting solely or in apanel, enjoys in law the status of a quasi-judicial agency but independent of, and apart from, the NLRCsince his decisions are not appealable to the latter. The cases within the voluntary arbitrator'sjurisdiction are different from that within the NLRC's jurisdiction.
