Arbitration Award for Air Reserve Technician (ART) Bargaining Unit Employees of NAIL Local 7

In National Association of Independent Labor (NAIL), Local 7 and U.S. Department of the Air Force, 4th Fighter Wing, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina, FMCS No. 16-51813 (August 11, 2016), the National Association of Independent Labor (NAIL), represented at arbitration by Bonney, Allenberg & O’Reilly, P.C., received an arbitration award that prevents the Air Force from requiring that Air Reserve Technicians (ARTs) wear their military uniforms while in civilian employment status.  The arbitration decision found the Air Force’s requirement that the ARTs wear their military uniforms while in civilian employment status to be contrary to 10 U.S.C. Section 772.  Arbitrator Ellen Saltzman wrote, in part, that the Agency was to “immediately cease and desist requiring ARTs to wear a military uniform while working in their civilian job.”  The full text of the arbitration award can be read by clicking on the following link: NAIL, Local 7 and U.S. Dep’t of Air Force, 4th Fighter Wing, SJAFB, FMCS No. 16-51813 (August 11, 2016).
