602.06000 – Change in Past Practice
Enforceable past practice because here, unlike in Courier-Journal (2004) 342 NRLB No. 113 where the contract language authorized the employer to make changes in health care premiums during the contract and the employer had a past practice for more than ten years of making such changes during the successive contracts and hiatus periods between contracts, the County had a 27-year past practice of awarding retiree health subsidies.
