Anti-Union Hiring Practices

Four construction unions – The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry, and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters – reached a settlement with Fluor Daniel over the company’s alleged discrimination against union organizers who applied for work. Fluor agreed to pay $12 million in back pay and interest to 167 union members who were denied jobs. The settlement resolved multiple cases brought before the National Labor Relations Board dating back to the early 1990s alleging Fluor Daniel intentionally refused to hire qualified union members to work on utility maintenance projects in Kentucky and Arizona, and on an Exxon refinery job in Louisiana.
