We have some tremendous news for Teamsters at the Department of Corrections. Your Local Union has won both the Furlough I and Furlough II arbitration cases. A full back-pay award will be dispersed in July.

As a result of the win, impacted members at the DOC will receive:

  • Full back pay for Furlough I and Furlough II on the July 10 payroll.
  • 12% interest for 7 months on Furlough I and Furlough II, paid as soon as possible thereafter.

In total, $1.6 million dollars will be dispersed to Teamsters at the DOC. Thank you to all Local 117 members for waiting so patiently for resolution in the case.

This award demonstrates the strength of your contract with respect to your seniority rights as union members. Other unions, including WFSE and SEIU fought the furlough, but only Local 117 was able to achieve an arbitrator's make-whole ruling in its members' favor.

View the settlement agreement in the case here.  If you have any questions, please talk to your Business Representative.
