Va Afge Master Agreement

“In articles that have not been fully decided [in contracts], the department presents proposals that subordinate the [collective control agreement] to agency policy and future government-wide rules and regulations,” AFGE wrote. “[Here] the department`s repeated and insistent proposals require the union to waive its right to negotiate important working conditions for departmental policy and then adopt government-wide rules and regulations. This body has made it clear that it will not include such proposals. Every topic covered is understood that medium-term agreements at all levels can include Tom Temin: And the executive orders of the Trump administration cover a lot of territory, and what response can you reasonably expect, would you be in agreement, in terms of official time and all other provisions? 5. The e-mail referred to a letter of intent dated September 1, 1995. Although CENTRE AIT defended its conduct in this case on the grounds that the purpose of the amendment to this procedure was covered by an agreement, on 1 September 1995, the agreement was not invoked by the VA Center during that proceeding, nor was it subject to investigation or explained. Instead, VA Center relied only on section 20 of the parties` current authorization to base its defence that it was not required to conclude because the purpose of the amendment was within the contract of the parties. Ibidun Roberts: So what we`re looking for in the treaty is really the procedures, right? You can`t negotiate the law itself. Congress has deemed this law appropriate, so we can only carry out the procedure.

For example, the law reduced the time it takes employees to take action to 15 days. Therefore, as soon as the VA submits a deportation proposal to a staff member, it has seven days to respond to this proposal. And then, within a fortnight, eight days after its response, the VA must make a decision. This really reduces the time that the union can look for evidence to help and actually give the answer to that employee. To meet with the employee, gather evidence and formulate a response. It`s really too insensible. And if you add that the union is not in the facility now, I`m sure we`ll get there, it makes it a lot harder to meet an employee to meet a move, a big upheaval in their lives. That is what we want to see in the agreement.

We want the procedures to allow workers to meet with the union, give them time to do so and allow the employee to participate when that meeting is scheduled for response, instead of management setting their own appointment, which could be the next day or two days later, if the employee may not have had the opportunity to do so yet. to formulate his answer. So we want to have formal procedures in the agreement. The body removed several articles from the agreement and removed others, said Ibidun Roberts, who represents NVAC. Ibidun Roberts: That`s right. It is the master contract, the locals get certain arrangements to negotiate on the ground. But it is for the general concepts on which we agree at the national level. Perkins served the breakaway team responsible for Section 44. During his tenure as President of the Union under the previous MA, his attempts to negotiate issues on the ground, which were already in the parties` previous collective agreement, were thwarted because management asserted that there was no obligation to negotiate because of the scope of the doctrine. The purpose of Article 44, paragraph 1, point (c) was to give local trade unions the right to negotiate issues already discussed in the AD.

During the negotiations, AFGE clarified that if Section 1 (c) was not included in the MA, AFGE would explicitly add a language to each part of the treaty in order to “cover almost all the situations that the Union could create, thus creating a massive control agreement”. Ibidun Roberts: Oh yes.
