    Postal workers Joseph Cursseen and Thomas Morris die after inhaling anthrax at the Brentwood mail sorting center in Washington, D.C., which has since been re-named after them. Other postal workers are made ill. Letters containing the deadly spores had been addressed to U.S. Senate offices and media outlets - 2001

    Strike of Teamsters, Scalesmen and Packers in New Orleans. City trade is paralyzed; in two weeks the walkout becomes a general strike, involving more than 20,000 whites and blacks together, in support of demands for union recognition and a 10-hour work day - 1892

    The first U.S. federal minimum wage – 25 cents an hour – takes effect, thanks to enactment of the Depression-era Fair Labor Standards Act. The law required an increase to 30 cents an hour one year from this date, and to 40 cents an hour on this date in 1945. The FLSA also established the 40-hour work week and forbade child labor in factories - 1938

    The 40-hour work week went into effect under the Fair Labor Standards Act, signed by Pres. Roosevelt two years earlier - 1940
    U.S. minimum wage increases to 40 cents an hour - 1945

    AFL-CIO readmits Teamsters union to the labor federation, ending a 30-year expulsion for corruption. In 2005 the Teamsters again parted company with the AFL-CIO – along with a half-dozen other unions – over differences of approach on organizing and politics - 1987.

    25,000 silk dye workers strike in Paterson, NJ - 1934

    In what becomes known as the Great Hawaiian Dock Strike, a six-month struggle to win wage parity with mainland dock workers ends, in victory - 1949

    Today's Labor Quote: Oil, Chemical & Atomic Workers Union

    “Contracting out of maintenance work, elimination of relief crews, excessive overtime, and paring of staff to the ‘bare bones’ set the stage for an explosion that was waiting to happen.”

  • SAD / LEL / Mil Leave

    5 U.S. Code §5519

    Crediting amounts received for certain Reserve or National Guard service

    An amount (other than a travel, transportation, or per diem allowance) received by an employee or individual for military service as a member of the Reserve or National Guard for a period for which he is granted military leave under section 6323(b) or (c) shall be credited against the pay payable to the employee or individual with respect to his civilian position for that period.

    (Added Pub. L. 90–588, §?2(b), Oct. 17, 1968, 82 Stat. 1152; amended Pub. L. 102–378, §?2(39), Oct. 2, 1992, 106 Stat. 1351Pub. L. 104–106, div. A, title V, §?516(b), Feb. 10, 1996, 110 Stat. 309.)

    So, when using the 22 days his Technician check will be offset by the amount he is paid while on SAD.

    So, if the employee earns $1500 as a technician

    And earned $500 while on SAD

    His Technician check is offset by the $500 amount:

    $1500

    -$500

    $1000 – this would be in his technician check.

    Emergency military leave. Under 5 USC 6323 (b), employees may take 22 days of emergency military leave when the president, secretary of Defense, or a state governor calls them to active duty to support civil authorities or a military contingency operation. Employees receive the greater of the military or civilian compensation, not both. This offset does not include travel, transportation, or per diem allowances.

    • Reservists or National Guard members who perform military duty in support of civil authorities in the protection of life and property are eligible for an additional 22 workdays of military leave under 5 USC 6323 (b).
    • An employee is eligible for the additional 22 days of leave only when activated for full-time military duty under Sections 10 USC 331 , 10 USC 332 , 10 USC 333 , or 10 USC 12406 , or other provision of law, as applicable, or when activated for full-time military service for his state.
    • Under 5 USC 5519 , the military pay received by an individual who has been activated to support civil authorities in the protection of life and property must be credited (less any travel, transportation, or other per diem allowances) against any federal civilian pay the employee received during the 22 workdays of military leave.

    • While on SAD tour, if the employee gets hurt, they are covered under the State’s workmen’s comp and usually have to pay their medical bills upfront.
    • If an employee gets put on SAD, they can use the 22 days mil leave, come off SAD and be a technician for one day, then go back on a SAD and use another 22 days of this type of leave.

    5 U.S. Code §6323

Leave under this subsection accrues for an employee or individual at the rate of 15 days per fiscal year and, to the extent that it is not used in a fiscal year, accumulates for use in the succeeding fiscal year until it totals 15 days at the beginning of a fiscal year.

    (2)

    In the case of an employee or individual employed on a part-time career employment basis (as defined in section 3401(2) of this title), the rate at which leave accrues under this subsection shall be a percentage of the rate prescribed under paragraph (1) which is determined by dividing 40 into the number of hours in the regularly scheduled workweek of that employee or individual during that fiscal year.

Upon the request of an employee, the period for which an employee is absent to perform service described in paragraph (2) may be charged to the employee’s accrued annual leave or to compensatory time available to the employee instead of being charged as leave to which the employee is entitled under this subsection. The period of absence may not be charged to sick leave.

    (c)

    An employee as defined by section 2105 of this title or an individual employed by the government of the District of Columbia, who is a member of the National Guard of the District of Columbia, is entitled to leave without loss in pay or time for each day of a parade or encampment ordered or authorized under title 39, District of Columbia Code.
