CBA Negotiations Updates
Why does this matter? While management has staff whose official duties encompass CBA negotiations, those of us representing the Union, do not. In an attempt to find workload balance, the Union asked Management to meet every other week for Negotiations, using the time in between to work on proposals and amendments to existing articles in the CBA.
What can you do? It’s a great time to join the Negotiations Team and help us balance the workload even more! We could use your support and expertise! The more representation we have, the better our representation of everyone’s needs will be. Here’s the quick survey to join the CBA Union Negotiations Team.
What’s plain language? The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires all federal agencies to write "clear government communication that the public can understand and use." And that includes CBAs.
Why does it matter? One of our research sleuths discovered that plain language discourages the use of Latin abbreviations. So forget the “i.e’s” and “e.g.’s” and just say what you mean so future generations will not have to guess at your intent or misuse of these abbreviations! And out they went from our CBA.
