LCW Partner Adrianna Guzman And Associate Chris Frederick Succeed In Getting Union’s Grievance Regarding Supervisory Duties Dismissed
The union claimed that the public agency had assigned veterinarians supervisory duties outside the scope of their class specification in violation of the operative memorandum of understanding. Adrianna and Chris established that while the general class specification for veterinarian did not list administrative “supervision” in the examples of duties, the job duty statement specific to the public agency (and which one of the grievants helped draft) highlighted the supervisory duties, the job announcements for the position included supervisory duties, and the grievants (all of whom were hired after the job duty statement was updated) were specifically questioned about their supervisory experience during their interviews. The arbitrator denied the union’s grievance.
