Letter to BOP Director Sept 2010

E-mail Message

Letter given to a bargaining member by Management regarding "light duty" due to illness or injury. Management does not care about taking care of their own in times of need. This has been done in the past, but now, it's "NO" to everyone. This is not the way to take care of "the Bureau's most important resources". 
Local 501 will be filing informal resolution to the Warden in the near future ( click below for letter). Posted August 2010
