Re: Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance
Inappropriate & Inequitable Transfers
Article I. Purpose
Article V. Seniority and Job Vacancies
Article VII. Discipline
Article XXV: Non-Discrimination

Dear Mr. Nigro:

CWA Local 1081 submits this Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance, on behalf of the following members of our Union, to protest the fact the County transferred them recently without requisite regard to their respective agency-wide seniority in violation of the above cited contractual articles, particularly Article V. Seniority and Job Vacancies:

Melinda Audige, FSW
Priscilla Mendez, CT-BL
Safia Rogers-McClean, FSW
Chanelle Sanders, FSW
Jean Thomas, FSW

With the existence within the agency of numerous vacant positions, as well as the contractually violative placement of less senior employees in positions more senior employees may well plausibly prefer, the resolution CWA Local 1081 respectfully demands to this grievance is for the County to allow all of the abovementioned members of our Union, and all those subsequently to be transferred as well, their hard earned seniority to determine their new assignments. We seek a hearing, in this regard.


David H. Weiner, President, CWA Local 1081
