Freight Panel Corrects Decision

On February 21 the National Freight Grievance Committee issued a clarification in a case from Local 776, which protects the right of a freight Teamster to appeal to a third doctor regarding a DOT physical.

This document corrects what appeared to be a very wrong-headed decision issued on February 3.
