AFL-CIO UNIONS GET $80 MILLION IN BACK PAY FOR HHS/IHS EMPLOYEES
Another victory on an FLSA grievance is hardly news, but an $80 million dollar back pay check is always something to crow about. NFFE, AFGE and LIUNA spent the summer implementing a settlement with the HHS Indian Health Service to get employees properly paid for overtime hours they worked. The Baltimore firm of Snider and & Co. led the litigation. There was no mention of any of the independent unions representing IHS employees sharing in the deal.
