AFGE WINS $35 MILLION IN BACK PAY FOR EPA MEMBERS just reported that the AFGE Council of locals in the Environmental Protection Administration has settled a grievance for $35 million in retroactive overtime pay.  EPA management had told these employees they were not covered by the overtime laws–when they were.  The union stood up for them and worked this dispute for nearly six years before management relented.  This is another fine example of a union protecting employees when many of them did not even know they were being cheated. It is unclear what this will mean for those EPA employees not represented by AFGE.
