Union Wins “Weather Grievance” @ Medegen!

March 11, 2016

When a major snowstorm rolled through West Tennessee last year, company officials at Medegen Medical Products disciplined dozens of workers who were unable to make it to work or got there late because of the weather.

SEIU filed a grievance asserting that the discipline was unreasonable because of severe weather conditions. The case was set for arbitration but the company agreed to settle the grievance. In the end, 22 members had their discipline reduced or thrown out while 4 other members received a cash settlement.
