Good news mixed with bad on the union front at Robins

The numbers are encouraging. It has been a bit more than 40 days since the new union leadership took office at Robins Air Force Base and grievances have dropped by 40 percent. While not the end-all of issues at Robins, that’s good news, considering that in 2012 workers filed 328 grievances at Robins -- more than at Hill Air Force Base in Utah and at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma combined. Retired Maj. Gen. Robert McMahon, who now leads the 21st Century Partnership, started waving warning flags this year that the number of grievances could be a major factor for the Air Force in determining the future of Robins.
