Jarod Faker and his PMA buddies decided to deregister Local 23 B-man Toby Jackson in November 2017.
According to the following draft Settlement Agreement sent to Local 23 and PMA on December 13, 2018, Jarod Faker and Local 23 violated Toby’s rights and PMA colluded with the Union in violating Toby’s rights.
Near the end of 2017, Jarod Faker and his buddies, Deano McGrath and Dave Basher, decided to “get rid” of some of the B-men they did not like because they were going to be advancing in November 2017.
Jarod and his buddies decided that they were not going to allow Chiropractic appointments to accepted as medical excuses for low hours.
Apparently the brain trust at PMA, I hear they have law degrees now, decided to go along with Faker’s plan and in October 2017 the JPLRC told Toby that the Chiropractic excuses, they had been accepting for years, were no longer acceptable and issued him a Letter of 1st Warning for low hours.
The next month, Toby was cited again by Faker and crew with the standard PMA issued JPLRC cite letter, which told him they had a problem with his excuse, but failed to tell him what their specific problem was.
When Toby appeared, he was told that he had failed to provide any excuse for his low hours.
Toby told the Committee that he had turned in his excuse as usual and was told by Faker that they did not have any paperwork from him.
Toby pulled out a copy of the paperwork he submitted and provided it to the Committee, who told him his paperwork was not acceptable because it was not date-stamped by the Local 23 secretary.
Toby was found guilty of his 2nd low hours violation, and he was deregistered 1 week before he would have been made an A-man.
PMA went along with Faker’s refusal to accept Toby’s medical excuse, because it was not date-stamped by the Local 23 secretary.
Toby handed it to them, at the meeting he was cited to appear at to explain his low hours, and they refused to accept it because it was not date-stamped.
Faker’s idea, and PMA went along. WOW.
Toby went to the NLRB and filed a charge against both Local 23 and PMA.
In December 2018 the NLRB General Counsel in Washington DC decided that PMA was guilty of colluding with Local 23 to deny Toby’s rights and Region 19 sent both PMA and Local 23 the following Settlement Agreement.
If they refuse to settle, the Region will issue a Complaint and Notice of Hearing and we will go to trial.
In case you are wondering what the make whole amount is going to be, here are excerpts from the PMA Annual Report for 2016 and 2017.
Jarod and crew have cost Toby 1 year as an A-man, plus his benefits, and the amount keeps growing and includes interest.
Jarod and crew don’t care. It’s not their money.
When the government gets back to work this will continue…….
