U.S. Steel wins in Supreme Court labor fight

  • The Supreme Court handed a victory to employers today by ruling that a group of unionized steel workers does not have to be paid for the time they spend "donning and doffing" safety gear before and after their shifts.
  • The ruling came in a case involving workers at a U.S. Steel (X) plant that was closely watched by industries that employ workers who wear safety clothing.
  • The decision makes it harder for unionized workers to seek pay for time spent changing clothes before and after work if it is not specifically addressed during labor negotiations; such claims have been the subject of much litigation.
