Your Union filed a grievance today over the DOC's decision to eliminate recruitment and retention pay for members working at certain facilities, in certain job classifications.  

The grievance asserts that the removal of assignment pay was arbitrary and capricious and "therefore a direct violation of the negotiated agreement and interest arbitration decision..."

We have requested that the DOC expedite the process and move the grievance to arbitration.  

As soon as we have any additional information about this case, we will let you know.
