As far as I know, superlatives and cardinal numbers + to infinitive can be used instead of relative clauses.
For example: He is the first man to have done it = He is the first man who/that has done/did it.
Does "It's the fourth generation to work here" mean "it's the fourth generation that works/has worked here".
The general meaning is that certain work has been done for four generations.
