22-SHIFT LIMITATION ARBITATION AWARD

for all Steady CY, Heavy Lift, UTR, and Rail Pusher

 

Please read the decision from Southern California Area Arbitration Award #1-2014 (SCAA-0001-2014). This decision is based upon a rule that was established in 1972. If you are a steady CY, Heavy Lift, UTR, or Rail Pusher Operator you can be worked a maximum of 22-shifts in a calendar month by your steady Employer. This does not mean that you cannot volunteer from the Dispatch Hall on your days off. It simply means your Employer can only schedule you for 22 days in the month.

 

SCAA-0001-2014

 

The following decision shall be in accordance with the Kagel interpretation of the Steady Skilled Men Addendum that has remained unchanged for over forty (40) years.

 

DECISION:

 

  1. The Employer shall be limited to working steady men to 22 days per calendar month in the following categories: CY, Heavy Lift, UTR, and Rail Pusher.   

  2. The effective date of this Award is modified to begin on February 1, 2014.  

  3. Either party may request after March 1, 2014 a review of the decision at the local level and present their respective positions as it pertains to whether equalization has been accomplished.

  4. The parties are not precluded from mutually agreeing to a different equalization formula.

Come to your membership meeting to learn more.
