Briefing February 20 – March 1, 2013

1. March, 2013|lsa briefing|No comments


In order to further improve the lines of communication and to respond to the concerns between Local 548 and you our members, I have established a Local 548 Briefing. This Local 548 Briefing will bring you the latest news and developments within Bay Pines and provide you with the current status of issues this Local and National AFGE is currently addressing. I believe that this Local 548 Briefing will greatly enhance the way in which we communicate and the way in which we share new information, such as keeping you better informed with updates on the Local Supplemental Agreement.

Briefing: ~ Supplemental Agreement Negotiations ~

During the weeks of February 20, 2013 – March 1, 2013, the Local 548 Union and Management went back to the table to begin negotiations on the Local Supplemental Agreement. We began discussing Articles 12-20.

The first week was challenging. The Local 548 Union and Management only agreed on one Article; Details and Temporary Promotion.

However, the second week was more positive and productive. During the second week, four more Articles were discussed and agreed on. These Articles include “Reassignments, Shift Changes, and Relocation”, “Employee Assistant (EAP)”, “Awards and Recognition”, and “Employee Rights”.

Articles we were negotiating, but not agreed on by the end of this session were, “Discipline and Adverse Action”, and “Telework”.
