Via Burn Bag:
[Last week] we got the word that the Department will have to pay out on the 2013 MSIs. They lost once, appealed and the review board denied the appeal.
Unbelievably, they added this line to the cable “The Department is disappointed by the [review board] decision.”
It’s nice to feel valued.
To read more about the implementation disputes governing the award of the 2013 Meritorious Service Increases (MSIs), check the files below. The Foreign Service Grievance Board found in AFSA’s favor last year. The Department appealed this decision to the Foreign Service Labor Relations Board (FLRA), which rendered its decision on April 20, 2016, see below:
