VA Grievance Filed
The VA is not meeting the requirements for meal reimbursement or 24/7 availability of food.
The VA is required to follow the meal reimbursement guidelines established in the CBA for any house officer that rotates at this affiliated site. The HOA has enough information, thanks to all of you who responded to our request, to move forward with a grievance which was filed on December 18.
To be as clear as possible, ALL bargaining unit members (ALL House Officers) regardless of what program you are in, are entitled to meal reimbursement while rotating at the VA. Otolaryngology reported not being eligible for meal money because they were Oto. This is simply not true and has been brought to the attention of Labor Relations and GME.
