U.S. Steel wins Supreme Court labor fight
WASHINGTON Jan 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that employees at a U.S. Steel Corp plant do not have to be paid for the time they spend "donning and doffing" safety gear before and after their shifts.
The nine justices were unanimous in the ruling. Federal labor law excludes "changing clothes" from the time for which unionized employees must be paid, unless they have negotiated otherwise.
