President Sharbutt

Brothers and Sisters,

Our President, Roberta Sharbutt, will be away for an extended period of time due to a medical condition she is currently experiencing. 

Prior to her departure, she designated me as the Acting President of your Local.  Michele McHenry is the Chief Steward for the Medical Center and Regional Office.  Eventually, a Chief Steward will be appointed for the Medical Center.

I ask that when you send emails to us, you send it to Michele and myself, but please do not copy Roberta as she is not monitoring her email.  She would also have thousands of emails waiting for her upon her return to work at the Medical Center.  I speak with Roberta every day when possible and I will brief her on what is happening.  If you have something that you specifically want Roberta to be aware of, please let us know that in your email to us.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

In Solidarity,

Wayne and Michele

New Member Incentives

Team Local 0003,

If you sign up an eligible person to join the union, you BOTH must come to the union office (Medical Center or Regional Office or CBOC's) at the SAME TIME in order to receive any new member incentive that may be in place at that particular time.

In solidarity,

Your E-Board

EEOC Victory

Brothers and Sisters,

On Friday, September 14, 2012, the union was informed that an EEO case filed against the Agency (VA Regional Office) was won by the terminated employee and the union!  This case has been going on for 27 months.  With this victory, the Administrative Law Judge determined that the case was proven and the employee will be reinstated to federal employment at the Regional Office, receive all back pay, annual leave, sick leave, any scheduled promotion and/or within grade increases and will be, in EEO terminology, made whole.

The Agency does have the right to appeal, but the Judge made a clear decision for the employee.

A great win for the employee, your union and organized labor as a whole!

Another great benefit of dues paying membership!

In solidarity,

The E-Board

We have meetings scheduled and as you know, the union covers the VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, the VA Regional Office, and the Community Based Outpatient Clinics. Read More...
