1496 Ray-Barrett and Sanders v. Local Union 652

Case No: 1496


The new plant uses a system of teams whose members must be able to perform each of the tasks assigned to the team. There were no openings available on any teams that did not include at least one job outside of appellants’ physical restrictions. There is no evidence that the Company discriminated against the appellants or violated their seniority rights, although it does appear that the team concept is less adaptable to employees with disabilities than an arrangement where each employee has only one job to perform.
