Arbitration, Oil Refinery and United Steel Workers, HAZOP

This case involved the Company's decision not to follow a participative program provision in the contract, where the Union had unilateral veto rights over the Union's participation in the program. The Company instead assigned employees under management's rights to work on process safety management. The arbitrator upheld the Company's right to make the work assignment, even though it was not a typical job duty of the assigned employee.
