Last year, Local 1445 member Angie Goldsmith was unfairly terminated because of an incident that had absolutely NOTHING to do with her work performance or her job. Immediately, her Local 1445 steward and Local 1445 business agent went to work on her behalf, making sure she had access to legal counsel, helping her file and win unemployment benefits to tide her over while her case was pending, and helping to keep her spirits up by providing emotional and moral support throughout her ordeal.
Local 1445 also made sure Angie’s case went all the way to arbitration, where the arbitrator ruled that Angie’s employer did NOT have just cause to terminate her. Angie won her job back with all benefits, received back pay, and her suspension and termination were removed from her personnel file. Now she’s back doing the job she loves, where she’s a valued member of her department - taking care of patients as a critical care tech.
