This is a very informative award that outlines what is acceptable behavior of Employees and especially Employers interacting with each other. If you find yourself in the same situation as Mr. Bork in an altercation with a supervisor please disconnect with the supervisor, inform him he is bullying you then contact a steward to grieve for remedy and/or damages.

Arbitrator Holds Evraz to Issuing Fair Discipline

The local was successful at arbitration regarding discipline for Proznick that involved almost all aspects of the definitive KVP decision from 1965. Please read an overview of guide to the 6 rules of  The KVP Award on Company Rules . A three day suspension was removed.

Hopefully this decision will illustrate to Evraz  and its management team that they cannot act in an arbitrary, discriminatory or unreasonable manner when implementing policies and enforcing them.

Here is the decision regarding Mr Proznick      Evraz USW Proznick dis.KVP
