Labor-Management Forums

On December 9, 2009, President Barack Obama issued Executive Order 13522, Creating Labor-Management Forums to Improve Delivery of Government Services. Section 1 of Executive Order 13522 states that "...Management should discuss workplace challenges and problems with labor and endeavor to develop solutions jointly, rather than advise union representatives of predetermined solutions to problems and then engage in bargaining over the impact and implementation of the predetermined solutions..." AFGE Local 2442 members are encouraged to share their observations and concerns with Union Officers and Shop Stewards so that relevant concerns and issues are raised during the Newark VARO Labor-Management discussions. "The forums are meant as a way of officially involving union representation in negotiations between workers and management to reach a fair compromise that works for all, more efficiently delivering government services." Success stories will be posted for registered union members view only.
