items from facilities affected by work
stoppages. (a) It is the policy of the Department of Defense with respect to the movement of items from facilities affected by work stoppages to avoid the use of force or the appearance of force and to prevent the occurrence of incidents which will detrimentally affect relations with labor and management.
(b) Materials which the contractor is unable to deliver because of a work stoppage at the plant, and the delivery of which is urgent and critical to an important program, may be obtained in accordance with procedures set forth below:
(1) Subject to § 12.101-1(d), the procuring contracting officer or his representative, upon the direction of the Departmental Headquarters Labor Relations Office, shall furnish a written request for removal of the material to Contract Administration Office (CAO) having cognizance over the plant. The Commander of the cognizant CAO or his representative shall attempt to work out an arrangement agreeable to both management and the labor representatives involved for shipment by normal means of urgently required material. Prior to making any removal, the Departmental Headquarters Labor Relations Office will solicit the opinion of the National Office of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service or other appropriate mediation agency as to the effect the movement of items would have on negotiations. The procuring contracting officer's request will include the following:
(i) A statement as to the urgency and criticality of the system, subsystem or item needed;
(ii) Description of items to be moved (Nature of item, amount, approximate weight and cubic feet, contract number, item number, etc.);
(iii) Mode of transportation by which items are to be moved if different from contract and whether by Government or commercial bill of lading; and
(iv) Destination of material if different than contract.
(2) If an arrangement in accord with subparagraph (1) cannot be made, the Commander of the CAO or his representative, after obtaining approval from the responsible Departmental Headquarters Labor Relations Office, may seek the concurrence of parties to the dispute to permit movement of the required material by military vehicles with military personnel to the extent needed. On receipt of such concurrences, he may proceed to make necessary arrangements to move the material.
(3) If satisfactory arrangements under subparagraph (1) and (2) cannot be made, the matter shall be referred to the responsible Departmental Headquarters Labor Relations Office with the information required by $ 12.101-4(b). If that office is unsuccessful in obtaining the voluntary concurrences of the parties for movement of the material involved and further action to obtain the material is deemed necessary, the matter shall be referred to the Director, Production Sevices, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Installations and Logistics).
(4) Upon review and verification that the material is urgently or critically needed and cannot be moved with the consent of the parties, the OASD (Installations and Logistics) may request the Secretary of the Department to order removal of the material from the plant or plants involved.
(c) When the requirements of two or more departments are or may become involved in the movement or removal of the material, the CAO shall coordinate such requirements with the departments concerned. 130 F.R. 6005, Apr. 29, 1965, as amended at 35 F.R. 6834, Apr. 30, 1970) § 12.101-6 Procurement of stevedoring
services during labor disputes. Where stevedoring services are furnished by a contractor to a Military Department, and the performance under the contract, although urgently required, is delayed through a labor dispute, the following procedures shall be utilized in the order of priority listed. Each successive procedure shall be used only when the preceding steps are inadequate.
(a) An attempt shall be made to have management and labor voluntarily agree to exempt military supplies from the labor dispute by continuing the movement of such material.
(b) Vessels shall be diverted to alternate ports able to provide necessary ste. vedoring services.
(c) Consideration shall be given to contracting with reliable alternative sources of supply within the stevedoring industry.
(d) Civil Service stevedores shall be utilized to perform the work theretofore performed by contract stevedores.
(e) Military personnel shall be utilized to handle the cargo which was being handled by contract stevedores prior to the labor dispute.
(f) Where the exigencies of a situation require deviation from the procedures outlined above. Departmental labor relations headquarters offices set forth in $ 12.101-3(d) shall be notified promptly. Such offices shall report the action taken to the Industrial Relations Advisor, OASD (I&L). [30 F.R. 6005, Apr. 29, 1965, as amended at 35 F.R. 6835, Apr. 30, 1970) & 12.102 Overtime. [32 F.R. 12099, Aug. 23, 1967] § 12.102–1 Definitions.
As used throughout $$ 12.102–12.102–7:
(a) “Normal workweek" and "normal workday" mean, generally, a workweek of 40 hours and a workday of 8 hours, respectively: Provided, That in any area outside the United States, its possessions, and Puerto Rico, a workweek longer than 40 hours, or a workday longer than 8 hours, will be considiered normal (1) if such workweek or workday does not exceed that which is normal for such area, as determined by local custom, tradition, or law and (2) if bours worked in excess of 40 in such workweek, or 8 in such workday, are not compensated at a premium rate of pay.
(b) “Overtime” means time worked by a contractor's employee in excess of the employee's normal workweek or normal workday.
(c) "Overtime premium" means the difference between the contractor's regular rate of pay to an employee for the shift involved and the higher rate paid for overtime. It does not include shift premium which is the difference between the compensation paid to an employee at the contractor's regular rate of pay for the base shift and that paid at the regular rate of pay for extra-pay shift work. (32 F.R. 12099, Aug. 23, 1967)
§ 12.102-2 Policy.
It is the policy of the Department of Defense that all contracts will be performed, so far as practicable, without the use of overtime, particularly as a regular employment practice, except where lower overall costs to the Government will result. Contractors should utilize whatever work schedule results in the lowest overall cost to the Government consistent with contract delivery and performance requirements. Extra-pay shifts and multi-shift work should be scheduled, as required, to achieve these objectives. In the negotiation of contracts, overtime premiums will be recognized in establishing a fixed price or estimated cost only to the extent consistent with the needs of the Government for the supplies or services being procured.
