Decisions and Orders Digest for 2013
GENERAL TEAMSTERS LOCAL 959, INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF TEAMSTERS vs. ANCHORAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT, Case No. 11-1609-ULP. Decision and Order No. 298 (May 6, 2013). The unfair labor practice by the Teamsters Local 959 is denied and dismissed. The parties’ collective bargaining agreement contains a broad management rights clause that gives the Anchorage School District the authority to decide all equipment and machinery to use in its operations, regardless of the effect on employment. By agreeing to this article in the collective bargaining agreement with the Anchorage School District, the Teamsters Local 959 waived its right to bargain over global positioning system devices, which are either equipment, machinery, or both. The Teamsters also waived the right to bargain any effects of the devices.
