In this case the Postal Service charged the Grievant with CAWOL- Continuous Absence without Leave for a period of time. The Service had argued that several three day letters were sent to the Grievant asking for documentation to support her absence and/or report back to work; however, there was no reply, in addition to no-call. The case was heard at arbitration in front of Arbitrator Frank Giordano. The union presented the case arguing that the Grievant should not have been CAWOL and there are mitigating factors that require this arbitrator to reinstate. Unfortunately, the arbitrator ruled against us in what I believe is a poor decision.
