Contacting Your Business Agents by E-mail

We have found the "contact us" page on our site is not the most efficient way to contact the NBAs in our office by email.  Please use the email addresses listed below to contact the NBAs directly.  Thank you.

Bob Kessler (Clerk craft)  --
Dan Skemp (Clerk craft) --
(When emailing your clerk NBAs, please send your questions to both NBAs.  Thanks.)

GATS Numbers

As we have decried for years, we really need GATS numbers for your case files. An increased number of cases don't have GATS numbers on the Step 2 Appeal to Arbitration or the Step 3 Appeal. In a number of cases it is because the local has failed to go into EGS and modify the Step 2 grievance form. Double-check your denials to see if the GATS number is on there.
