Special Rates Court Case -- NTEU v. United States, No. 02-128 C (Fed. Cl.).
The special rates litigation deals with pay adjustments made to special rate schedules for General Schedule employees from 1982 to 1988. On February 28, 2003, the order issued by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims on December 20, 2002, approving the parties' proposed settlement became final. This means that the settlement has obtained "final approval" and will now be implemented.
The National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), which represents the plaintiff class in this case, has established an Internet Web site at www.specialratessettlement.com. That web site provides relevant information regarding the the litigation and the settlement. In particular, see the "Recent Developments" page -- http://www.specialratessettlement.com/recent.htm.
