A deal reached Monday between the Labor Department and the National Restaurant Association could help boost pay for overtime workers who don’t want to be treated like serfs in a union.
The agreement would give workers paid time off in lieu of regular pay if they’re at least 16 and if they can show they’ve worked for their employer for more than 60 consecutive days.
Workers would also get a year of paid vacation.
Union members in a national restaurant group are seeking to organize a union to form an umbrella union for all restaurant workers.
The National Restaurant Federation represents restaurants, restaurants and catering companies, among other employers.
The NLRB’s Office of Labor Standards Enforcement and the Labor Management Reporting and Analysis Act have been working for months to reach a deal.
The labor department wants to be the mediator between the two sides, and the NLRB is a part of the NLBSA, the umbrella union representing restaurant workers that also includes the National Retail Federation.
In recent months, the NLRSA has pushed to keep overtime pay from being paid to salaried workers who work for their employers.
While workers could still be forced to take time off for unpaid time off, they could do so under the agreement.
Under the agreement, workers who join a union would get paid for the time off and be eligible for overtime pay if their employers agree to it.
The deal also would provide a yearlong paid vacation to unionized salaries.
The two sides have been negotiating for more time to reach an agreement, and that could come as soon as this week, said the Labor Secretary, Daniel Korski.
The deal is expected to go into effect Jan. 1, 2019, and could potentially allow employees to be eligible to get paid overtime if they join a bargaining unit and if their employer agrees to the overtime payment. “
We will continue to engage in direct and honest dialogue and work cooperatively to achieve a fair and equitable workplace for all.”

If workers join a group of salariers, they would be eligible.
The NLRB has been working with the union since the spring.
An employee who joins a union is also eligible for paid vacation if he or she stays at least 30 days and works for the same employer for at least 60 consecutive calendar days.
If employees join a salarier union, they’d also be eligible if their workplace has an agreed-upon work day and the salarie union agrees to overtime pay.
