Illinois Uniform Arbitration Act is silent as to whether an arbitrator may reconsider the merits of an award before the award becomes final. Thus, arbitrator has authority to entertain a motion to reconsider as long as parties' agreement does not prohibit arbitrator from doing so, including language that an award would be final when issued. (McLAREN and HUDSON, concurring.)
