1559 Palmer v. Local Union 668
Case No: 1559
Palmer admitted that Management had never required him to work overtime in return for flextime hours. No other employees came forward to complain about Management’s use of the flextime policy or claim to have been denied overtime opportunities as a result of a failure to equalize overtime hours. No violation of the National Agreement had been established so the Union’s decision to withdraw Palmer’s grievances protesting Management’s use of flextime to reduce overtime costs was rational.
