Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining open forum

MBTA v. Boston Carmen's Union, Local 589 (June 2009)
Wednesday, April 14, noon-1:30 p.m.
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

In MBTA v. Boston Carmen's Union, Local 589 (June 2009), the Supreme Judicial Court considered the validity of two arbitration awards holding that unilateral employer action to redress alleged discriminatory practices violated the provisions of the CBA. We will discuss the significance and practical applications of the court's decision in this case, including the court's determination that public policy supports the granting of retroactive seniority and pay rate to settle a pending MCAD claim, even where such action might otherwise violate the CBA.
