June 12, 2019 - Folks,
I want you all to know that the Federal Service Impasses Panel has ruled on our union contract dispute and they gave us a split decision. The good news is your union was successful at saving your contractual rights to file a grievance if you feel you have been wronged.
June 6, 2019 - Here is an example of the new 6' x 6' cubicle that SSA wants to implement in proposed renovation and relocation actions. This proposal measures 36 square feet versus the current 9' x 6.5' (approx) cubicles totaling 58.5 square feet. Overall this is a net loss of about 22.
June 4, 2019 - The Federal Service Impasses Panel has ruled on our contract dispute. It isn't pretty, but as we have been advocating the Union is still here alive and well because we still have the Federal Labor Statute.
It is that time of year when sanctions training is coming up in conjunction with PACS discussions. The Union is advising you NOT to sign as you are essentially waiving progressive discipline and agreeing that the slide show presentation is full training and an acknowledgement that you fully understand a vague policy.
