NPH Wins Military Leave Benefits for NEPBA Worcester Sheriff’s Employees

NPH attorneys won an important Arbitration Decision upholding the rights of Officers at the Worcester County Jail to use their Military Leave benefits to cover weekend drills.  This practice had long been in place at the jail, and was unilaterally ended by the Sheriff, forcing the military officers to use their personal time, or go unpaid, in order to attend Military drills, even where they had plenty of contractual military leave days left to cover the days off.

NPH was proud to support this very important cause on behalf of NEPBA Local 550’s veterans.
