Box 10.13: Safety and Gloves Discharge, With Just Cause?

Teaching Notes

The Issue

The union claims that the company violated the collective bargaining agreement by

dismissing Erin McNamara without just cause. The company claims that Erin McNamara

was dismissed for just cause. So the issue is clear: was Erin McNamara dismissed with

just cause?

Discussion

Company Position

The company argues that there certainly was just cause to discharge Erin McNamara.

First, McNamara was observed sorting material without safety gloves. The collective

bargaining agreement (Article XX) provides for immediate discharge for “refusal to

comply with plant rules” so management has the right to discharge McNamara on this

basis alone. Moreover, McNamara had seven verbal warnings and a three-day suspension

in the previous 12 months. The (unchallenged) suspension contained the warning that

immediate discharge will result from any violations of Barrera rules. Failing to wear

safety gloves violated company rules and is therefore a basis for dismissal.
