1579 Evans et al. v. UAW Ford Dept.

Case No: 1579


The UAW Ford Department interpreted the phrase “date of hiring” in Article VIII, §4(a), of the UAW/Ford National Agreement to refer to the date of hire at the physical location rather than date of hire by Ford Motor Company. Appellants argue that this interpretation was incorrect and violated their seniority rights. This Board is precluded by Article 33, §3(f), of the International Constitution from reviewing a challenge to the UAW Ford Department’s interpretation of the National Agreement.
