The City's appeal in Middlesex Superior Court to overturn the arbitration award in the Light Duty Case has been taken under advisement by the Judge assigned to the case. A decision could be rendered in the next several weeks or possibly months. The membership of this Local voted at the May Union Meeting to allow the Court proceedings to play out before making any decisions on further courses of action.
The Middlesex Superior Court has upheld the arbitration award for Local 1032. The Chief is not allowed to remove a firefighter from injury leave and place in him/her on light duty.
