Grievance Process Initiated

Failure to advance House Officer pay has resulted in a grievance.

Recently, the House Officers Association learned that some residents, having successfully completed a post-graduate year of training, were not properly advanced on the House Officer Salary Schedule.  If true, this would constitute a violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement ("Agreement").

The HOA has requested a list from The Review Committee (Tom Peterson, Rich Holcomb and Kevin Newman) of any HOA member who was not advanced on the Salary Schedule as outlined in the Agreement.  This list should be inclusive of all affected house officers who were members of the bargaining unit during the agreement period beginning on July 1, 2009.  This is an ongoing request for information.  The current contract is set to expire June 30, 2014.

If any HOA member thinks they may be part of this affected group of employees, or has experienced a similar compensation issue, please call (936-9205) or email Robin Tarter at rtarter@med.umich.edu.
