On Tuesday, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wrote a column regarding the federal pay freeze and union membership. Well, he got a good number of emails from readers and listeners, some of whom said they think unions are too political. On this week's Your Turn, Causey talked with Colleen Kelley of the NTEU and Judy Park of NARFE to get their thoughts.
The National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations miss a deadline to report to President Obama by at least 30 days. They need more time to figure out how to give managers and rank-and-file feds a place where they can sit down and discuss common problems.
Employee union claims agencies have abused their privileges and OPM has done nothing to stop them. NTEU says the Federal Career Internship Program flies in the face of merit system hiring principles.
AFGE and NTEU see areas where OPM could improve the federal human resources processes, but believe a major overhaul is not necessary. AFGE calls for more steps in the GS system and a broader use of career ladders. NTEU wants managers to receive more and better training on the how to best use the current HR processes.
We're hearing loud applause from at least one group for the proposed return to the definition of "inherently governmental."
One of the largest Federal employee labor unions is in the second day of its three-day legislative conference, held yearly in Washington. The National Treasury Employees Union is pressing for things like collective bargaining rights for Transportation Security Administration screeners while also expressing its concern for the safety of all feds at their workplaces.
Ever since the founding of the Transportation Security Administration, two federal employee unions have vied for the right to organize and represent TSA screeners at the bargaining table. Now, one of those unions has filed a petition to do just that, even though neither TSA or its parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, have yet to officially endorse collective bargaining for the screeners.
