United States Federal Circuit
National Federation of Federal Employees, Local 1442 v. Dep't of the Navy, 14-3175
In a joint petition for review of an arbitrator's decisions denying grievances filed by a union, challenging the furloughing of bargaining unit employees for six discontinuous days, which was the result of an automatic process of federal agency spending reductions known as "sequestration," the decisions are affirmed where the arbitrator did not err in finding that the furloughs promoted the efficiency of the service and were in accordance with law.
