IAM District 9 and Local 660 went to bat for our members in East Alton, IL and won again to the tune of $13,299.32 in overtime back pay.
There are several unions at the plant and both the IAM and Carpenters filed grievances because the company was paying overtime to the wrong classification.
Meditation did not solve the issue.
Machinists District 9 Business Representative Joe Eccardt represented both unions in the case at the request of the Carpenters District Council and won the decision with overtime back pay. The Carpenters Union members received $5,750.48 in overtime back pay.
