Local 24 Wins Another Arbitration

Local 24 fought AKIMA to get union employees paid for holiday pay.

AKIMA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) states: “In the event the Federal Government and I or Joint Base Andrews declare an additional Federal Holiday(s) in excess of current holidays per Article 11.1, such new declared holiday(s) will be granted to the employees covered by this agreement.

President Obama declared December 26th as federal holiday but AKIMA refused to pay their employees. A federal arbitrator ruled in the union’s favor and ordered AKIMA to pay up.  Union membership pays!
