This article continues the joint work of Professors Abrams and Nolan concerning the major issues addressed in labor arbitration. Unionized workplaces often include in their collective bargaining agreements provisions for the payment of premium pay to employees who work in certain situations, such as overtime hours beyond the normal workday or work week or hours worked when employees are called-in to work during non-working hours. The resolution of these disputes requires careful attention to the terms used by parties in their agreements within the context of the basic purposes of such provisions and an understanding of how they generally operate in the workplace.
