In re: Snap-On Tools Corp. and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, Lodge No. 1045

A no-smoking rule was promulgated unilaterally by a company.  An arbitrator ruled that it was properly promulgated, where the rule was related to the legitimate objective of a clean plant, does not apply to a working condition and is similar to restrictions on other personal privileges imposed without challenge from the union.  The arbitrator had no jurisdiction to determine whether the rule should apply to non-unit employees.
