The issue in this National Level Arbitration was whether two Electronic Technicians were improperly classified and compensated. The Union demanded that these two employees be upgraded to level 10, and that they be made whole for all time worked at Level 9 from the date on which this grievance was filed.

Award Summary: Arbitrator Gamser denied the grievance, determining that the Postal Service did not violate any of the provisions of the 1978 collective bargaining agreement when it did not upgrade the salary level of the Electronic Technicians at the Santa Ana Facility from Level 9 to Level 10.
