AFGE Local 3981 and FCI Jesup, FMCS No. 12-50804 Portal-to-Portal Grievance

Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman & Fitch is happy to announce the recovery of $5,500,000 in AFGE Local 3981's grievance against FCI Jesup 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 backpay and liquidated damages on behalf of Local 3981's hardworking bargaining unit employees. The Grievance covers affected bargaining unit employees who worked at FCI Jesup during the period August 5, 2008 through September 29, 2017.

The Union will be distributing money only to the affected bargaining unit employees who complete the Union's form. The sign-up period for this case has ended and we are in the process of calculating points to determine how many points each person who signed up is entitled to receive. Once all the points are calculated, each person who completed the Union's sign-up form will receive a letter explaining the points system and how many points he or she is allocated based on this system.

If you have any questions, please contact the Union's attorney, Heidi Burakiewicz, Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman & Fitch, P.C. by email at [email protected], or by phone at (202) 331-9260 and ask to speak with Alyssa Harrison.

Please remember to thank your Union - AFGE Local 3981 - without whom there would not have been a grievance or a settlement.
