Re: Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance Response Rejoinder

       Untenable Military Park Ist Floor Conditions


Dear Mr. Ramos:


CWA Local 1081 submits this rejoinder to Director Nigro’s attached denial response to our Union’s attached Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance of February 5, 2009, submitted on behalf of all of our adversely affected and potentially adversely affected members employed by the Essex County Division of Welfare and assigned to the first floor of the Military Park Citizen Services Center protesting the untenable working conditions that resulted therein since the landlord’s operatives had begun the process of altering the physical plant to include a dropped ceiling.


Director Nigro’s attached Step II Class Action Grievance denial response of February 13, 2009 is unacceptable to CWA Local 1081 and our Union’s adversely affected members. The factual reason the PEOSH (Public Employees Occupational Safety & Health) representative who “visited the premises on Wednesday, February 11, 2009” at our Union’s formal behest did not indicate the County need take any action was due to the fact the County had already had the landlord effectuate remedial measures based upon our grievance in advance of the PEOSH representative’s arrival.
