|Letter to the OPBA – Appreciation – 2012|
December 6, 2011
Subject: Letter of Appreciation
Dear Mr. Gallagher:
I would like to publicly thank our OPBA attorney Joe Hegedus for all of his hard work with our department over the past year. Joe helped negotiate a fair contract with our city while we were under fiscal emergency. Joe also represented one of our officers in a grievance over injury leave. Even though the arbitrator did not side in our favor, Joe made a very professional and (in my opinion) better case for the OPBA. It seems that the OPBA attorney job is a very thankless job but I would like to thank Joe on behalf of our entire union.
