MPEC, AFT Healthcare-Maryland Secure Compensation for Essential Employees

Share This

The Maryland Professional Employees Council (MPEC) and AFT Healthcare-Maryland discovered that several union members who worked during Hurricane Sandy as essential employees were not compensated according to the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and COMAR (Code of Maryland Regulations). 

Such workers should have been paid two hours for each hour worked and should have been credited with two days of compensation time for each day worked. Several state departments failed to compensate employees correctly.

MPEC President Maria Mathias and AFT Healthcare-Maryland President Debra Perry contacted the departments affected and corrections were made. Members’ pay and compensation time computations have been corrected.

If you believe you have not been paid correctly for working during Hurricane Sandy, please call MPEC or AFT Healthcare-Maryland at 410-764-3030.
