I-9 Subject of Bargaining?
My company recently acquired another company that currently has a union contract in place for a large percentage of the workers. We want to complete I-9 forms for the employees in this company, requiring them to produce the appropriate documents, so we can be sure our paperwork is in order. The union representatives have said that we cannot require the employees to produce documents since they completed forms when they were hired to work at the company. We know we can require the completion of new forms legally, but is this a subject of mandatory bargaining? Has anyone dealt with this before?
