Outcome

05/08/17

ATU Local 1342 for all affected pensioners age 65 or older

By the dated letter 5/1/17, the company wrote to retirees, Harry Howald, Donna Milks, Donald Uplinger and Ed Welch and claimed that the company had allegedly overpaid these retirees for Medicare B reimbursements. The company claimed that because they were not enrolled in Medicare B, they were not entitled to the payments they received from the company. In addition to suspending those payments, the company is seeking thousands of dollars and stated it will offset the amounts claimed due by withholding the retirees full medical stipend. The company's actions violate the collective bargaining agreement and impose an undue hardship on the retirees.

Gary Collins

The union contends Mr. Collins was unjustly terminated on 5/4/17. The union contends because of mitigating factors, the penalty was too harsh and should have been lowered.

Arbitrate

05/31/17

James Kolb

Mr. Kolb was not reckless, careless, nor did he improperly operate a Metro vehicle by having one hand on the steering wheel. Metro's rule book states (Section 4.2) operation of Metro vehicles are governed by NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law. By law, NY State only requires one hand on the steering wheel. Having one hand on the wheel does not constitute reckless or careless driving.
