My union contract was arbitrated and the arbitrator ruled

Customer Question

My union contract was arbitrated and the arbitrator ruled that a step system be implemented as of the beginning of the contract. There were people hired that were being compensated for over a year under the prior contract. The employer after the ruling reduced the workers salary and sent employees demand letter stating they must paid back what they earned and this includes overtime. Can this action be challenged
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Nevada
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full
time or part time?
Customer: Union
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's it for now. The arbitrator's decision language didn't include retroactive repayment nor grandfathering the employee's who would be affected by the decision.
