Arbitrator Rules for Union in Shift Differential Dispute

Employees of a defense contractor at Beale Air Force Base who work the afternoon and midnight shifts will receive shift differential premium pay for all hours, including their paid time off, as a result of an arbitration decision issued May 22, 2020.  Labor arbitrator John Caraway ruled for workers employed by InDyne Corp. who are represented by IBEW Local 340, finding that the union and the employer agreed in negotiations for their last collective bargaining agreement to extend shift differential pay to paid time off as well as hours worked.  

Altshuler Berzon LLP represented Local 340 in the arbitration.
