Re: Step II Class Action Grievance

Precipitous Dockings

Article I. Purpose

Article VII. Discipline

Article XVI. Pay Practices

Article XXV. Non-Discrimination

Dear Mr. Nigro:

CWA Local 1081 submits this Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance on behalf of all of our Union’s members whose respective pay was precipitously docked to protest management’s failure to abide by its own pronouncements that the Automated Time and Attendance Record Keeping System would not be utilized to determine such dockings until July 1, 2008.

As per the attached Tardiness-Absence Docking Request Division of Welfare documents, our adversely affected members had their pay docked in May and June of 2008 based upon the Automated Time and Attendance Record Keeping System.

The resolution CWA Local 1081 respectfully demand to this grievance consists of the County of Essex reversing the above referenced dockings and restoring the pay to our aggrieved members. We seek a hearing, in this regard.


David H. Weiner

President, CWA Local 1081
