The firm won an important labor arbitration filed against our aerospace client by the union. The union’s grievance challenged our client’s implementation of an extended work hours policy. The policy was aimed at curbing workplace accidents and placed limits on extended work hours by employees. The union challenged our client’s right to implement the policy, claiming a unilateral infringement on an employee’s right to work unlimited overtime. The union sought a recision of the policy and significant back pay for its members. The arbitrator denied the grievance in whole and upheld our client’s right to implement management policies for safe and efficient operations.
