Subject: Dear Tribal Leader Letter,May 22, 2015; IHS settlement with employee unions

Dear Tribal Leader,

Good afternoon,

Please be advised of the recent letter from the IHS Acting Director Robert McSwain to Tribal Leaders dated May 22.  This letter informs Tribal Leaders of a settlement that the IHS has reached with employee unions. The settlement resolves claims by IHS employees for overtime compensation for work that they performed in or for only Federally operated IHS hospitals, clinics, or facilities and for which they were not adequately paid.  

A national call was held with Tribes earlier today.

If you have any questions, please refer to the attached Dear Tribal Leader Letter.

Travis A. Coleman
