Local 1075 Wins Big Arbitration Case Vs Monmouth County
In a great start to the New Year the Local 1075 scored a big win for Monmouth County workers.
The County was ordered to reverse a unilateral 50% cut in promotional increases and payback all employees who were shortchanged.
For as long as anyone can remember, a promotion came with an increase to the minimum of the new position, or 6% whichever was greater. The County administration unilaterally decided to cut that in half to just 3%, even though the County Administrator received a 15% increase when promoted.
Presenting the case to the Arbitrator were President Kevin Tauro and Local 1075 Attorney Barry Isanuk, along with Chief Steward and EVP Neil Broccoli and Shop Steward Ed Fitzgerald.
If you were promoted within the past two years and did not receive a full 6% increase, or better, you are entitled to be made whole. Please contact your Steward.
Local 1075 offers Members free legal consultaions, wills and other discounted legal assistance through the Local 1075 attorney Barry Isanuk. Read more >>>
