FLRA, 815 F.2d 797 (1st Cir. 1987) and issued a writ of mandamus. The court ordered that the Authority dismiss the unfair labor practice complaint. [PAGE]

Footnote 1 The court stated that individual employees with claims for environmental differential pay "shall be entitled to file the same pursuant to Article 20, 3 of the collective bargaining agreement." Slip op. at 9. The court further stated, "it should be made clear that no employee waiver under 5 U.S.C. 7116(d) is involved in this case. The employee claims that may be made under Article 20, 3 are individual claims based on the declaratory ruling brought by the union, and are thus, technically, different proceedings from those in this case." Id., n.3.
