The City denied the Volunteer grievance: Waiver of individual claims; and duplicating claims from 2009. The 2009 claim was a UERP – it had a different legal theory. This legal theory is that management's conduct in expanding volunteer program has become a defacto contracting out of bargaining work, while decreasing bargaining unit positions. Deadline to respond by opting for Arbitration is November 6, 2012.
Proposal to obtain waiver signatures.
In a Petition form, and not limited to Criminal attorneys.
Motion: By Bobo: Move we proceed with the Arbitration of the group grievance.
In favor: Winslow, Fuchs, Lambert, Embry, McTeague, Rosenthal, Bobo, Brothers, Cole, Geller, Hiscocks
