The Supreme Court noted that Section 301 prejudges many collective agreement claims. Collective bargaining is contract negotiation – including wages, benefits and working conditions – between employers and employees, and that is one of the most important things the Association of Educators and School Employees does throughout Maryland. The rule provides that the State Staff Director establishes bargaining units for legitimate workers in broad occupational categories with a community of interest. There are currently 11 tariff units that can be collectively negotiated; 10 units, representing about 71% of the state-ranked workforce, are represented by exclusive representatives. Supervisory, management and confidentiality staff are not eligible for exclusive representation and collective bargaining. Organizing is the key to the negotiation equation. The greatest strength lies not only in the paying figures, but also in the number of informed and committed members who jointly promote change, seek to improve their working conditions or work for any other important step that members consider a priority. This is why educators appreciate their membership in MSEA: it gives them more voice on the topics that affect them every day in the classroom, in the school building and on the construction site. After collective agreements are reached, local subsidiaries and MSEA employees focus on contract enforcement – to ensure that headteachers respect the letter and spirit of negotiated agreements and that your workers` rights are respected. After hearing oral arguments in this case, the sixth circle issued an opinion on the employee issue.
In the Michigan Ass of Governmental Employees v. Michigan Dep`t of Corrections, 992 F.2d 82 (6th Cir. 1993), the complainants sued their employer for overtime pay. The landgericht found that the applicants were exempt from the FLSA`s overtime requirements because they were bona fide executives. She granted the defendant`s request for a summary decision and dismissed the case. On appeal, the applicants argued that they were not executives of good faith because they had not been paid on the basis of it. The applicants relied on the defendant`s sick leave policy, which stated that, in the event of sick leave depletion, “a reduction in compensation for the time lost for the working time during which the absence took place” Id. to 85. The applicants submitted that once the vacation credits had been exhausted, their allowance for absence of less than one day would be reduced.
However, the Tribunal found that the compensation manual was ambiguous. It did not expressly accept that the applicants should receive a reduction in salary for absences of less than one day. As the parties challenged the proper interpretation of the manual, the Tribunal considered how the policy had been applied.
