In November of 2017, AFGE Local 1015, representing US Department of Transportation, FMCSA employees in Texas, filed a grievance against the DOT on behalf of all bargaining unit employees. The Grievance alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Title V (FEPA), among other violations.
The Union has retained Snider and Associates, LLC, as the Union’s counsel for this matter. The firm is working hard for the bargaining unit employees to ensure that their rights under federal law are upheld. As part of the process, Snider & Associates’ attorney have been contacting DOT employees about their job duties and to discuss if, and how much, unpaid overtime they have worked.
The Union and Agency have agreed to stay processing the grievances while an attempt is made to resolve portions of the matter.
If you are or were in the AFGE Local 1015 bargaining unit and you believe that you have information to share about overtime for which you did not receive proper compensation, please contact us.
All bargaining unit employees, whether or not they are members of the union, and regardless of position or pay grade, are covered by this grievance and could potentially benefit from a successful result.
