Crossover work in other district:
Delayed arbitration hearing in Claremore due to City objecting to subpoena issued by Arbitrator, arguments between Union and City went on for over a week with Arbitrator finally making a decision that Union would be able to look at the information requested but would not be able to make any copies or take any of the documents.
Handled grievance mediation in Edmond over member disciplined for refusing to step up and work out of class. Mediation did not go well and there was no resolve met during mediation. Apparently the Union and City worked out a deal later.
