Supervisor sorry in grievance case

May 04, 2011 - A grievance against Independence Township Supervisor Dave Wagner, released to the public last week, was apparently resolved three weeks ago.

In an email to Human Resources Director Carol Gabris, April 12, union representatives said the grievance "was satisfied and resolved."

According to the grievance, a township employee got a phone call, Dec. 29, 2010, from another employee about a meeting regarding a piece of property owned by the township.

"I was told that Dave Wagner walked into Dave Belcher's (building director) office very irate," the employee said. "Further I was informed that he said, 'your brother is a ****,' and if I caught him out, I would hit him with a ****ing bat.'"

Gabris recommended Wagner apologize to the employee and "assure him that remarks of this kind will not be repeated as they create an atmosphere of fear and distrust," which is against towship contract and policy.

According to a hand-written note at the bottom of the grievance, dated April 12, Wagner apologized to the employee, which was accepted.
