Peace Corps has entered Phase 1 of reopening our HQ, but the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage. OHR has issued guidance that at this point in time, no one should be in the office unless directed by an A-Delegate or Office Director.
If you believe you have been asked to return to the office unnecessarily, or if you feel that your work conditions are in any way unsafe, please reach out to the Union so we can contact OHR on your behalf.
The Union Executive Board meets with the organization’s OHR leadership quarterly to discuss issues relevant to Peace Corps employees. The minutes from the latest JLMC meeting on 9/24 are attached below.
Topics covered included:
- COVID-19 return to the office updates
- Delayed career ladder promotions
- Social Security tax withholding issues
- Diversity and training initiatives
The FEVS is an important opportunity to give constructive feedback on job, supervisor, leadership, work space, and more. Please take some time to complete this survey when you have the chance this week.
You should have received a personal link to the survey, but if you cannot find it, you can email George Otis in OHR.
The Union holds weekly lunch meetings on Tuesdays over Zoom. Want to attend?
