The applicants rendered their services under that contract until 27 November 2015 when they received a letter from the respondent's Town Clerk terminating the contract for alleged breach by among other reasons, failing or defaulting to remit funds collected in the sums agreed upon under that contract.The respondent stipulated that the matter be referred to arbitration in accordance with clause 13 of the agreement.
