Some Canine Handlers have asked if the claims in the Abad case for non-canine handlers are different and whether they should be in both cases. If you have been a canine handler the past 3 years and continue to work as such, you only need to be in this case - the Abrego case. This case covers all of the claims being asserted in the Abad case plus claims that are unique to canine handlers such as at-home care. Both cases cover unpaid pre-shift, post shift and gun cleaning activities. Bottom line: If you have been a canine handler throughout the period for which we are claiming damages, you do not have to join Abad as this case will cover all of your claims.
Note - if you did not receive the letter from the NBPC with the forms, your mailing address probably needs to be updated. To update your mailing address, visit the AFGE website, login as a member, and update your contact information.
