Hazantown Agreement Law and Legal Definition
This is a type of type of collective-bargaining agreement used in the garment industry. Hazantown agreement governs the relationship between a jobber and the contractors that produce the jobber's garments. The agreement does not govern the relationship between the jobber and its own employees, but governs the relationship between the jobber and the contractors that manufacture the garments which the jobber sells, including agreements that the jobber will use only unionized contractors. The agreement will also ensure that salaries and bonuses are appropriately paid, and will contribute to employee-benefit funds maintained on behalf of the contractor's employees. This term gets its name after the Danielson v. Joint Bd. of Coat, Suit & Allied Garment Workers' Union case. This is also termed as jobber's agreement.
