Class Action Update

The Union is aware of a lawsuit brought by a non-bargaining unit employee involving pay for changeovers under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and a number of members have contacted the Union after receiving a “Notice of Right to Join Lawsuit for Unpaid Wages Against Wisconsin Electric Power Company d/b/a We Energies” in the mail. The Union will remain apprised of the litigation. Although the litigation arises outside of the collective bargaining agreement and was brought by a non-member, you may feel free to participate in or not participate in that litigation as you see fit. The union is not involved and is not able to provide advice. If you have specific questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact Mark Maierle at the union office at 414-570-0420
