In November of 2017, AFGE Local 17, representing US Department of Veterans Affairs employees in Washington, DC, filed a grievance against the VA on behalf of Attorney Advisors in the OVLJ. The Grievance alleged violations of 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.
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 an Attorney Advisor in the AFGE Local 17 bargaining unit and you believe that you have information to share about overtime for which you did not receive proper compensation, please contact us.
