Union Member Rights & Officer Responsibilities
FYI. Please share. The attorney received a thumb drive with the decision. The decision is 685 pages long. As I have indicated through the course of this process, the arbitrator has the option to order payment on some or all claims, deny payment on some or all claims, or order hearings on some or all claims. The attorney will need approximately two weeks to complete her review. Then we will notify people of the decision in their individual cases and what the attorney feels are the appropriate steps. We will keep you posted. Council President Gabrielle Martin
The arbitrator advised us that he expects to report in the first quarter of 2015.

Subject: OVERTIME AWARD UPDATE
At this point, if you have filed a claim, it is before the Arbitrator. There will be a decision on your claim. However, as usual, when it is close to the deadline, we get some delay activity from the agency. Here is the latest and I can't say it makes any sense, because why would you need additional time to file objections if you already reviewed the materials and decided your objections. In any event, following is the text of the arbitrator's decision which gives the agency until August 9, 2013 to file any objections. As started before, if there is an objection to your claim you will be notified by the attorney and we will work with you through that process.
"Ms. Hutchinson, Mr. Hegy & Mr. Sherlock-
I have reviewed my notes of our January 30, 2013 conference call on this subject, as well as both parties' recent submissions. I conclude that the following are the time periods to be observed, based on my determination of what the parties and I discussed during the January 30, 2013 conference call:
The parties agreed that March 12, 2013 was the date of delivery to the parties by Rust Consulting of the working claims database. The parties further agreed that the parties will have ninety (90) days after March 12, 2013, or by June 10, 2013, to review the claims forms. The Agency will then have sixty (60) days within which to file objections or agree to pay claims, or by August 9, 2013. The Union will then have forty-five (45) days, or until September 23, 2013, within which to respond to any such Agency objections.
The above does not include a 30-day period that had been requested by the Agency for the parties to attempt settlement of some claims, a request opposed by the Union.
