THE ABOVE INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS AND EXPLAIN AS IT SHOWS THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF THE CONTRACTING OUT LANGUAGE IN THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT. THE CONTRACTING OUT LANGUAGE IS NOT JUST ABOUT A YES OR NO, SHOULD WORK GO OUT OR NOT. THE LANGUAGE INCLUDES A PROCESS THAT IN ITSELF IS DESIGNED TO BE A DETERRENT. THE CONTRACTING OUT PROCESS ALSO INCLUDES’ BLOCK FORCE PLANNING’. THIS PART OF THE PROCESS IS DESIGNED TO ENSURE THE COMPANY DOES NOT EXPORT OUR JOBS TO CONTRACTORS AND PROVIDES A DETAILED ANALYSIS OVER A 6 YEAR PERIOD TO ENSURE THE APPROPRIATE ‘STAFFING LINES’  FOR EACH OCCUPATION CONTRACTED OUT ARE MAINTAINED

 

THIS LANGUAGE PROTECTS SERVICE, OPERATION AND TRADE OCCUPATIONS. OUR UNIQUE CONTRACTING OUT LANGUAGE APPLIES TO ALL JOBS.
