To clarify, based on the information provided by the Company, the arbitrator declares and orders that Mr. Duhaime’s suspension last until September 30, 2015, on which date he will be eligible to receive his unreduced pension, still on the condition that he retire at that time.
I will remain abreast of this grievance.
