Summary

The union protested the compliance of the incentive administration language of the basic labor agreement. Changes in equipment and the elimination of one crew member resulted in the loss of incentive earning for the grievants. The company contended that the new featured reduced work requirements; thus, the incentive application was applied properly. The union argued that the new standards should have provided the same earnings opportunities. The board determined initially that the incentive application should be liberalized by 2% to reflect the changes retroactive to July 1, 1967. The union protested that the date should have been retroactive to December 3, 1966. The board determined no evidence was provided to suggest the retroactivity date should have been adjusted. Award: split-2% liberalization sustained retroactive to July 1, 1967, appeal to change retroactivity date denied.

Comments

The standard under the 80" Hot Strip Mill incentive for operating crews shall be liberalized by 2% retroactive to July 1, 1967 in order to reflect the impact of AGC and related equipment upon operations. The evidence shows no failure to comply with the April 29, 1969 Award for the period from November 14, 1965 to December 3, 1966.
