Situation

After negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement, a union filed a grievance over the payment of overtime that would substantially increase the labor costs for a large distribution company. The company contended the matter was not subject to arbitration, contrary to the union.

Result

We defeated an action filed by the union in federal court after extensive legal briefing on several novel legal issues. Ultimately, the court agreed with the company’s analysis, resulting in no arbitration and substantial savings for the client over the term of the four-year contract.
