All rights reserved.8–17 Exhibit 8.1Example of a Work Jurisdiction Clause It is the Intent of the parties to this agreement to protect the work performed by employees in the bargaining unit. The employer recognizes that it is Important and desirable to use Its own equipment and drivers to the greatest extent possible before using subhaulers and/or noncompany trucks. The union recognizes that under certain conditions, such as those dictated by customer demands, equipment requirements, daily dispatch determinations, materials to be handled and similar factors, that subhaulers and/or noncompany trucks are necessary and have been so used throughout the Industry for many years. The employer, in accordance with the above, must however, determine the number, type and location of Its working equipment in conformity with its business requirements. The employer further must be able to determine, in keeping with sound business practices, the extent to which It will replace equipment that Is too costly to operate, obsolete, or damaged. Under these condition the employer agrees the subhaulers and/or noncompany trucks will not be used as a subterfuge to defeat the protection of the bargaining unit work. In keeping with the above, the union recognizes that the employer will use such subhauier and/or noncompany trucks as required by location and classification only after all the available company trucks at such locations and in similar classifications have been initially dispatched.

Employees can be awarded retroactive seniority as a remedy for past discriminatory practices. The use of seniority in layoffs is permitted where the layoff may or does adversely impact minorities. Reverse discrimination claims are not valid if the affirmative action plan: Is a negotiated settlement between the union and employer. Does not harm majority employees (loss of jobs). Doesn’t exclude majority employees from advancement opportunities.
