10/14/2014 - It’s been just about a year since I took office. Wow, how time flies!
Since taking office, I have instituted a very aggressive arbitration schedule based on my belief that disputes at the national level must be resolved to bring closure and provide guidance to union leaders and members in the field.
During the past year, at least two national-level arbitrations have been heard per month. This has enabled us to get some great decisions that will enhance our field representation. We now have three national-level arbitrators hearing cases rather than two.
