The SCCA Legal Committee and SCCA’s John Cooper will be presenting on Designating “Special Shifts.”

Designating a special shift under the Operating Engineers Local 12 master labor agreement is a convoluted process.  Recently, a contractor prevailed in a special shift grievance arbitration brought by Local 12.  The arbitration decision is a victory for contractors and clarifies what qualifies as evidence of a bona fide job requirement.  We will be discussing the arbitration ruling and best practices for designating special shifts under the Master Labor Agreement (MLA).
