Years of hard work by your Union and its attorneys, Snider & Associates enabled AFGE Local 252 to resolve its 2009 Overtime Grievance with the U.S. Department of Education and recover damages on behalf of the bargaining unit. For many years, management failed to both designate and pay many of our members correctly in accordance with the laws governing overtime compensation and, as a result, many of you were not properly compensated for overtime work.

Your Union leadership, both past and present, worked hard for many years to reach this settlement on your behalf. In celebrating this huge victory, we remind you that this is just one of our many important successes in recent years and we encourage you to become a member of AFGE.
