Beyond the efforts of Right to Work`s lawyers, union bosses in these enclaves are free to force workers to pay full union dues as a working condition — a situation no different from the 29 states that do not have a worker protection law. Given that most employers working in federal enclaves obtain federal contracts, this memorandum was a double blow for these workers. First, the Clinton administration requires employers to enter into collective agreements with union bosses if they want to keep their lucrative federal contracts. Union bosses are then able, because of the hostility and federal laws towards workers, to force workers to pay dues or give up their jobs. Industrial Relations Agency staff or other appropriate staff may register as users and submit arbitration decisions and CBAs through OPM`s laboratory document submission portal. Upon approval, Agency users can submit arbitration and approval decisions directly through this application. CBAs must not contain signatures, names or other personal identifiers. Agencies can simply delete the CBA signature page or talk about individual signatures, names and other CBA personal identifiers. Please note that all CBAs must be submitted in a PDF format (portable document format) in accordance with section 508 of the Amended Rehabilitation Act 1973 (29 U.S.C 794 (d) and 36 CFR Part 1194).
Arbitration awards do not require Section 508 of Compliance or Redaction, but must be in an indecipherable format. For more information on submitting documents, see the CBA database declassification memorandum. To register for the first time as an agency user, please visit the user registration page. Dukes and Kelley say they have made numerous attempts to meet with Fort Gordon management and discuss working conditions. Workers in the right-to-work states, whose jobs are located on federally owned land, are often not protected by their state`s right-to-work laws. These so-called federal enclaves, often military bases, sometimes fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of federal labour laws, which authorize forced unionism. Determining the protection of an enclave by the right to work depends on how the federal government acquired the land. « I invite all of you to write at least one letter to the leadership of Fort Gordon and another to U.S. Congressman (Rick) Allen, » Kelley told the protesters. « Silence has not brought us anywhere, so it`s time to raise our voices. » According to Jamie Dukes, president of the AFGE Local union in 2017, the meeting was described as a news post to protest bullying caused by the management and harassment of workers who cause problems in the workplace. Dukes was fired as a lab technician on February 4 due to a « medical inability to do my job. » « Employees are reprimanded for expressing an opinion and that`s not normal, » Dukes said. « Management is closing our eyes on our employment plan and refusing to respect the contract we have entered into.
All we want to do is sit down and talk to management, but they refuse. This picket line is organized to draw attention to the unfair treatment of Fort Gordon employees. Dukes said he filed a complaint for his resignation, and management is not prepared to handle complaints from other employees. Executive Order (EO) 13836, Developing Efficient, Effective, and Cost-Reducing Approaches to Federal Sector Collective Bargaining, signed by the President on May 25, 2018, requires agencies to submit any long-term collective agreement (CBA) and its expiry date within 30 days of the CBA`s entry into force. EO 13836 also requires OPM to make these CBAs available to the public on the internet. This promotes transparency by allowing the public to consult the types of agreements between federal agencies and industry unions. Agencies
