1708 Hare v. Region 1D
Case No: 1708
The company made a credible claim when it hired Hare for a temporary position that it could not predict how long the temporary positions would last. After that, the local union and the UAW International Union monitored the temporary assignments to determine whether approval of the use of temporary employees should be extended. The record demonstrates that the local union and the UAW International Union performed their contractual role as monitors of the company’s use of temporary employees to avoid the kind of abuse described in Document No. 144. Once the situation stabilized, the International Union responded reasonably by entering into negotiations with the company to make Hare’s position permanent.
