0r.1BE Staffers Hire Lav; Firm to
Fight Job Downgrading
WASHINGTON - Several
of the 34 employees of the
Office of Minority Business
Enterprise, who are scheduled
for downgrading, have
employed a law firm to fight
the action, according to a letter
to the agency's director by a
member of the firm, Glenn R.
Those who are initially
taking the action, with others
expected to join in, are Lewis
Giles, Jr., chief of the agency's
information service; Herman
Flora, program officer; Ms.
Sheila B. Adams, chief of
administrative service branch;
and Hyman L. Jarrett, project
officer stationed in Chicago.
Twenty of those facing a
loss of grade are GS-14s at
around $32,000 a year. Their
new annual salary would be
around $25,000. Two are
GS-15s at approximately
$34,000; the rest range from
GS-13 to GS-6, or from
$25,000 to $10,000.
A racial breakdown of
OMBE's 213 employees is as
follows: Blacks, 127; whites,
48; Spanish-speaking, 16;
Indians, two; and
Of those slated to be
downgraded, 15 are located
here, three are in San
Francisco, three in Chicago, six
in New York City, four in
Dallas, and three in Atlanta.
More than half are black.
In his letter to Alex
Armendaris, OMBE director,
Graves expresses concern that
the downgrading move is part
of a reorganization plan,
although the proposed
reorganization of the agency is
opposed by a Congressional

modern equipment for retreading, wheel balancing, front end alignment,
brake service, and many other items that make you, our customer, travel
safer and more comfortable than ever before. f
