The file attached is a partial list of claims progressed by the UTU General Committee of Adjustment and paid on checks received by Claimants during February 2011. We are grateful to all who properly submit claims with detailed information to enable successful handling of agreement violations. We urge proper handling in line with Article 79 of the UTU Constitution and the on-property agreement. The file list can be viewed by clicking = UTU Claims Allowed in Feb 2011
