National Treasury Employees Union v, FLRA, No. 10-1857 (4th Cir. 2011)

Opinion Date: 
July 26, 2011
Summary: 

The Union sought review of the Authority's decision (64 FLRA (No. 156) 833 (5/28/2010)) denying exceptions filed by both the Agency and the Union to an arbitrator's award.  The arbitrator found that the Agency violated the collective bargaining agreement and sections 7116(a)(1), (2), and (5) of the Statute when it advised all managers and employees that it would process employees' dues revocation forms even if the forms had not been signed or initialed by a Union official.  However, the arbitrator also found that a remedy the Union requested, reimbursement of dues from all of the employees whose revocation forms were processed without a Union official's signature, was not appropriate.  The court denied the union's petition for review.
