The Decker Decision refers to a 1997 arbitration at the now closed Stardust Hotel. The subject of the arbitration had to do with elimination of a shift. The decision set a strong precedent for how grievances should be handled in future shift eliminations. What the Arbitrator ruled, is that under certain circumstances a senior worker has the right to remain on a particular shift (defined as days, swing, graveyard) even though it was the senior workers hours of work and days off that were eliminated from the schedule.
