Epa Nteu Collective Bargaining Agreement
And AFGE Council 220, which represents staff from the SSA`s field and regional office, asked Congress to review the negotiating agreement it signed with the agency in late September. AFGE says it was “forced” to accept the contract or face more damaging conditions under presidential personnel regulations. Under the terms of the previous telework agreement, which was in force between 1998 and 2010, authorised EPO employees could benefit from a maximum of two days of telework per week. Agency officials expect the terms of the new contract to come into effect on July 8. The panel ruled on more than a dozen collective bargaining proposals and largely confirmed HHS`s proposed changes to its existing agreement with the union. The move set the conditions for HHS to start transposing new guidelines on telecommuting, leave and official time, which the union says it never technically approved. NTEU continues actions on Capitol Hill, such as. B the filing of a complaint in bad faith for unfair labour practices, in addition to the pending executive order request. The Environmental Protection Agency has put forward a proposal for collective bargaining that would reduce teleworking to one day a week, reduce official working hours, remove trade union offices from EPO buildings and facilitate the withdrawal of agency staff. Perhaps most remarkably, the arbitrator stated that HHS intentionally and prematurely terminated negotiations with NTEU before discussing the majority of the negotiating proposals. HHS declared a stalemate as early as August.
Peters, along with 43 other Senate Democrats, is asking congressional leadership to include the budget language passed by the House of Representatives in any final spending measure for 2020. Language should prevent agencies from implementing unilateral bargaining proposals that unions have not mutually and voluntarily accepted. The Department of Veterans Affairs has reopened its collective agreements with AFGE and other workers` unions and has been proactive in announcing its plans to implement the personnel regulations. The National Federation of Federal Employees said it was close to reaching a new agreement with VA. “The Trump administration has shown a revolting way of trampling on the rights of federal employees and ignoring the law in order to dismantle decades of previous agreements between our union and previous governments,” said AFGE J National President. David Cox in a statement. NTEU also filed a national complaint against the Office of Comptroller of the Currency of the Ministry of Finance. The complaint accuses negotiations in bad faith, and the case will go before arbitration, the union said. NTEU also negotiates with the EPO. The Impass panel intervened to resolve differences of opinion on the ground rules, the union said. In the meantime, a mediator helps both parties who are still negotiating a small number of articles that were not part of the decision of the deadlock body.
In April, the Federal Service Impasses Panel (FSIP), a seven-member board of directors of the Federal Labor Relations Authority appointed by the president, confirmed most of the changes proposed by the Department of Health and Social Services to its collective agreement with the National Union of Workers. The panel also rewrote the terms of a dozen proposed employment contracts between the social security administration and AFGE. The following is a summary of some of the major collective bargaining between the Agency and the union and where they are to date. .
