The article focuses on issues regarding the arbitration of work assignment disputes. In a collective agreement, the management has the right to assign work. This right was never unfettered even before the development of unions. However, there are limitations on management's fundamental right to assign work. One such limitation is seniority districts. The management has the right to determine crew sizes and work loads, but it maybe subject to the test of a fair day's work through the grievance procedure.
