Arbitration Win Lands 5% Payday for Members
“New management tried to side-swipe us and refuse union pay and coverage for our part-timers.
“With the union’s help, we took the case to arbitration and won for these members.
“We’re moving in the right direction.”
America has always been a country of immigrants.
Local 804 members at the United States Invesitgations Services (USIS) work on the front lines, processing identification cards for immigrants and U.S. residents who aren’t citizens.
When management at USIS tried to deny union rights and union pay to one group of employees, Local 804 took action—and won.
An arbitrator ruled the workers had the right to be Local 804 members. They came away with a five percent pay increase, including retro increases and a bonus.
Members at USIS won a new contract with 2 percent wage increases every year.
