Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features a research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Legal Research Digest 30: Contract Risk Management for Airport Agreements and Legal Research Digest 31: Preemption of Worker Retention and Labor Peace Agreements at Airports.

This webinar will identify primary risks associated with common contracts used by airports of all sizes, including construction, concession, ground transportation, professional services, repair/maintenance, vendor/purchasing, software/IT agreements, and airline signatory agreements. The presenters will discuss methods to address, shift, or allocate associated risks using contractual provisions. This webinar will also provide an overview of issues related to labor-harmony or labor-peace agreements. Airports have a diverse labor force and are increasingly being asked to become involved in matters that historically were reserved for private employers to address with their own employees. These matters include setting minimum wage rates, establishing safety/training baselines, and requiring “labor-harmony” or “labor-peace” agreements at the subject airports.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
