The National Labor Relations Board issued a Supplemental Order on June 24, 1992, vacating its prior order denying all backpay to Charging Party and adopting the recommended Order set forth in the judge's third supplemental decision against Respondent, Overseas Motors, Inc., its officers, agents, successors, and assigns, and the parties having consented to the entry of a consent judgment by stipulation dated September 14, 1992, and the Board having applied to this Court for the entry of a consent judgment, upon consideration of said application and stipulation:

2

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND ADJUDGED by the Court that the Respondent, Overseas Motors, Inc., its officers, agents, successors, and assigns, shall take the following affirmative action to effectuate the policies of the National Labor Relations Act, as amended:

3

(a) Make whole Miroljub Mitkovski for loss of pay suffered by reason of the discrimination against him, by payment to him of $200,000.00. Of this amount, $93,648.73 shall be construed as wages, and $106,351.27 shall be construed as interest.

4

(b) The interest portion of this amount shall be paid before any of the backpay portion is paid.

5

(c) Backpay and interest will be paid in 31 payments. The first payment of $85,000.00 (Eighty-five thousand dollars) shall be due in the Regional Office of the Seventh Region of the National Labor Relations Board on or before the 20th day following the date of the Board's approval of the Stipulation. The remaining 30 payments of $3,833.33 (Three thousand eight hundred thirty-three dollars and thirty-three cents) each will be due in the Regional Office of the Seventh Region of the Board on a monthly basis beginning 50 days after the Board's approval of the Stipulation. The second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth payment of $3,833.33 will be considered interest payments. Of the seventh payment $2,184.62 will be considered interest and $1,648.71 will be considered backpay. The remaining payments will be considered backpay.

(d) If any installment other than the final installment is not paid on or before the due date, the full unpaid balance shall become immediately due and payable and the Board may, without further notice, institute proceedings against Respondent for the collection of the full indebtedness remaining due, with additional interest on the entire unpaid balance from the date of default until full payment is received computed in accordance with the formula set forth in New Horizons for the Retarded, 283 NLRB 1173 (1987). However, Respondent shall have a grace period of 15 (fifteen) days following notice of default to cure the default before said collection procedures will be implemented.
