Summary:

An arbitrator awarded $75 million to over 1,400 postal employees in Pittsburgh in 2009. The arbitrator ruled that in hiring "casual clerks," the U.S. Postal Service deprived the employees of overtime pay over a ten-year period. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette used FOIA to obtain details of the award.
