RI-399 Settlement Update

  RI-399 Settlement Update

As of December 20, 2019, the National Office has received over 600 claims, and as previously announced we will continue to accept claims until January 17, 2020. As we process each appeal, a member of the National staff may have the occasion to contact claimants by phone and in writing to request additional documentation to seek or clarify details of the pending appeals. Local Presidents will be copied on all written requests for additional information.

We have provided each Local Union with a list of all mail handlers who have filed appeals from within each respective Local through December 20, 2019. We will periodically update and distribute the list. With that list, Locals will be able to confirm that the National Office has received an appeal from each mail handler listed within the Local.
