Brothers and Sisters,


  • employee had sick time returned to sick bank after being sent home for possible sickness.


  • Employees were called to arrange overtime for the following day and did not receive a meal after working more than 4 hours.

2ndstep requests:

  • 20-BER-008
  • 20-Ber-025
  • 20-BER-021
  • 20-BER-022

Arbitrations requested:

  • 20-BER-010
  • 20-BER-014
  • 20-BER-015
  • 20-BER-016
  • 20-BER-017
  • 20-BER-018


I continue to request expedited dates for the arbitrations as soon as possible

We continue to argue over contract language and the definitions of wording, which in my opinion is not something that should be happening. I hope that the arbitrations will put these issues to rest and we can continue to move forward.
