1656 Brayton v. UAW Ford Dept.

Case No: 1656


There is no provision in the National Agreement that would allow an employee voluntarily to initiate a transfer to another plant with his or her corporate seniority, thereby affecting the standing of employees on the plant seniority list at the new location. Brayton raised a legitimate objection to an agreement to allow two employees to transfer to the Lima Engine Plant with their corporate seniority dates. The IEB has now addressed the contractual violation identified by Brayton’s appeal. The National Agreement was correctly applied to Brayton, so the withdrawal of his grievance was proper.
