Four meat and poultry associations today filed an Amici curiae brief with the United States Supreme Court urging the court to uphold a lower court decision that permitted collective bargaining agreements (CBA) to address compensation for clothes-changing time. The associations include the American Meat Institute, National Chicken Council, National Turkey Federation and North American Meat Association.

The brief was filed in support of a decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, as well as several other appellate courts, that “affirms the long-established customs, practices, and expressly bargained-for CBA provisions of Amici members and their employees.”  Plaintiffs in Clifton Sandler, et. al. v. United States Steel Corporation are seeking to overturn the ruling.  Read More
