Employment Policy Disclaimer for Unionized Employees Covered Under a Collective Bargaining Agreement

This Standard Clause provides sample language to disclaim intent by an employer to unilaterally supplant or amend employment terms or conditions that are set out in a union collective bargaining agreement (CBA) in violation of Section 8(a)(5) of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). It may be incorporated into a stand-alone employment policy or an employment policy in an employee handbook that is applicable to unionized employees. This Standard Clause has an integrated drafting note with important explanations and drafting tips.
