Arbitrator Restores 8 Hour Rule for Supervisors
Arbitrator, Howard Edelman recently issued a decision agreeing with the Union’s position and restored how the Authority applies the eight hour rule to Dispatcher. In February of this year the Authority unilaterally changed the way they applied the eight hour rule to Dispatchers and we filed a grievance. After many Authority adjournments and delays the grievance was finally heard by Howard Edelman, and on November 6th he issued his award. If there are any members who believe they were denied overtime because of the misapplication of the eight hour rule, please contact your Chairperson and let them know.
If you would like a copy of the award, please contact the Union office.
