General Chairman Hazlett and Senior Vice General Chairman travel to St. Louis via Amtrak on Tuesday, June 7, 2005, for a double sized arbitration hearing.

Enough cases were prepared for two normal-sized hearings to help keep up with the increasing discipline our members have been subjected to.  This marathon effort will continue so that excessive waiting periods for resolution of discipline issues will not be experienced by those represented by GCA 953.

Another double PLB is scheduled for July, with more possible depending upon discipline levels.  The goal is to get dismissals to a Board within one year, and to continue to handle lesser offenses in a timely manner
