Working on a major Career Ladder Promotion Cases that is set for arbitration on April 23-25, 2013. It affects 4 NHTSA employees (all women); but has the ramifications of effecting hundreds of employees in DOT. We are committed to partnering and negotiating with agency management on behalf of bargaining unit employees to resolve issues at the lowest possible level. We also strive to assure that our bargaining unit employees are aware of their rights and stay informed on issues, including the most critical one they’re facing today—potential furloughs due to Sequestration (Federal budget cuts).
