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