Continuous / Travel Overtime Grievance

Sisters & Brothers ,

We are close to an agreement in the Continuous / Travel Overtime grievance.  Local 3621 members will need to provide the City with the amount of overtime the City owes each member.  Members who work overtime at different stations and or locations, clock out when leaving and clock in when they arrive at the station or location, need to print out and gather their time sheets.   Members should collect all time sheets that are pertinent to the grievance dating back to Jan. 1, 2015 to May 1, 2017.   All the time sheets should be scanned and emailed to 3621@uemso.com  (SCAN only, no pictures, pdf form is best)  DO NOT FAX ANY TIME SHEETS OR INFORMATION TO THE OFFICE. If we do not receive the information you will not receive any retro-active payment.

 

 

Contract Extension Passes

DC37 Members overwhelmingly pass contract extension that will allow millions of dollars to be poured into the union welfare plan’s financially-troubled prescription drug plan. An independent monitor, the American Arbitration Association, announced the results of the mail-ballot vote on March 10th.
Members approved the extension by a vote of 94 percent, with 22,526 in favor and 1,196 opposed. “The passage of the contract extension is a very significant step toward protecting the plan from being devastated by the relentless pressure of rising drug prices,” said DC 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido. 

This extension will earmark $24 million to the DC 37 Health & Security Plan, which provides the popular drug benefit. Under an agreement between the city and the union, the city will permanently raises its annual contribution to the DC 37 Health & Security Plan. The city will soon provide an additional $200 every year for each full-time member and retiree, increasing its annual fixed rate from $1,575 to $1,775. This rate contribution is pro-rated for part-time workers.
