George Bishop works with both management and unions in addressing Work Measurement and Engineered Labor Standards issues, and is a recognized expert witness in the field. George also acts as a mediator and arbitrator to resolve Engineered Labor Standards issues that exist between the parties. His consulting experience extends over many industrial sectors, with extensive experience in manufacturing, delivery, distribution and retail operations. George has successfully applied his engineering skills in Canada, the United States, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Australia. George is a certified MOST® trainer who taught Work Measurement and Methods Engineering at the undergraduate and graduate levels at both l’École Polytechnique de Montréal and l’Université de Sherbrooke. He has published numerous articles on Work Measurement and Engineered Labor Standards, including a chapter in the Maynard Industrial Engineering Handbook on the Purpose and Justification of Engineered Labor Standards. George is regularly asked to speak at international conferences, universities and Union symposiums on these subjects.


Work Measurement Systems:

Throughout his career, George trained and managed large groups of industrial engineers involved in the design and implementation of work measurement systems. As a pioneer in the field of Discrete Labor Measurement Systems applied to distribution, George developed the technical specification of the first Real-Time Discrete LMS. George was the key figure in the implementation of Engineered Labor Standards in the distribution sector in Canada.

Expert Witness:

George has testified on behalf of both companies and unions on more than 15 occasions in civil, criminal and labor litigation. His expertise is a key component to the proof and is most often at the core of the arbitrator’s decision.


George recently arbitrated  a case involving  a large corporation and  a union representing 70,000 employees. The process involved 11 days of hearings and resulted in an 82-page adjudication decision  that imposed new Engineered Labor Standards to be used to manage the workforce.
