Some info

1.The Unfair Labor Practice for TriMet Employees concerning COLA’s (cost of living adjustment) was settled and the Union won.
2.The COLA adjustments will be received retroactive calculating from 6/1/2011, 12/1/2011 & 6/1/2012. These are the scheduled dates that you should have received your COLA increases but did not, these are guaranteed wages that you will receive in your pay check.
3.TriMet’s current Arbitration is complete; Ron Heintzman was the expert witness for the union. Since Ron was one of the people who wrote the contract he was able to bring information to the proceeding and make it clear as to the intention of the Labor Contract Language. The decision for TriMet arbitration is expected on or before July 31, 2012.
4.The new contract negotiations for TriMet will begin in August, as the current contract (decided by the arbitrator), will expire in November

I have the original contract and there are discrepencies


THERE IS A MAJOR DISCREPENCY ON THE OLD CONTRACT AGREED AND TODAY'S REALITY

Take a good look at this clause. Why is this not allowed when the contract states it should be allowed?
