Every organization needs to dig a bit deeper into incentive programs when rolling them out in a union environment. Although not impossible to implement, special attention should be paid to the specific language of the master labor agreement to make sure no articles are being violated.

This is not a common occurrence, but should be considered when rolling out a program into a union environment.
