What We Do
The Peace Corps Employees Union represents employees through grievances or disciplinary issues, collaborates with management to improve the workplace environment, and strives to educate employees and management on employee rights.
If you believe your supervisor or agency management have violated your rights under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Union can represent you in filing a grievance to rectify the situation.
Representation for disciplinary action
If you have received a proposed disciplinary action, or have indication that this may happen, the Union can serve as your official representative, helping you understand the process and negotiating to ensure your fair treatment.
Educate, Collaborate, Negotiate
Not everything that happens in the workplace is a violation of our CBA rights, or sometimes we don't want to file an official grievance even if those rights have been violated. The Union can help explain the law and/or other policies to you and/or management to help rectify an inadvertent wrongdoing early on. Additionally, through the Joint Labor Management Forum (JLMF), we alert management to the issues concerning employees and work as partners to address them and improve our operating environment.
