AFGE Local 506 and USP 2 Coleman, FMCS No. 10-55640
Portal-to-Portal Grievance

Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman & Fitch is happy to announce the recovery of $9,500,000 in AFGE Local 506's grievance against USP 2 Coleman for failing to compensate bargaining unit employees covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") for performing work before and/or after their scheduled shifts. We are honored to have recovered this backpay and liquidated damages on behalf of Local 506's hardworking bargaining unit employees. The grievance covers affected bargaining unit employees who worked at USP 2 Coleman during the period February 16, 2007 through October 10, 2017.

The Union will be distributing money only to the affected bargaining unit employees who complete the Union's form. You MUST fill out and submit the required electronic forms to be eligible to receive a portion of the monetary recovery obtained by the Union.

Even if you previously completed a sign-up form for this grievance,
you must also complete the electronic forms.

We are currently in the process of setting up the electronic sign-up system and hope to have it ready in the next few weeks. Please check back to this webpage for updates about signing up electronically, the deadline to complete sign ups, and more information about the settlement.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact Heidi Burakiewicz, the attorney who handled this case, at ColemanUSP2Portal@kcnlaw.com. Email is the best form of communication, but if you wish to call, please call (202) 331-9260 and ask to speak with Alyssa Harrison.

Please remember to thank your Union-AFGE Local 506-without whom there would not have been a grievance or a settlement.
