The adoption of the contract cover standard by the Board of Directors gives employers greater flexibility to act within such protection rights and not just in future contract negotiations. It is significant that the Board of Directors considered that it was appropriate to “retroactively apply the contract hedging test,” which breathes new life into the language of existing management rights clauses in the CLAs. It will now be up to the unions to try to negotiate this type of protection of the legal language of CBAS. Prior to the MV Transportation Board`s decision, unions were less concerned about the inclusion of these general deposits in CBAs. According to the “clear and manifest waiver” standard, the effect of such a language was severely limited by the possibility of laying a charge of unfair labour practice, claiming that any implementation before an agreement or impasse constituted an unlawful unilateral change. This is no longer the case for MV Transportation and employers no longer have to commit to take legal action against the D.C circuit to impose themselves on this issue. 1.
