Evacuated workers who can work remotely but do not have a telework agreement are not required to obtain one, but are “strongly encouraged” by the IRS to complete their telework training, according to a list of questions frequently asked by employees. Article 35 – Offices – We can negotiate space actions that are not covered by the terms of the contract. However, the article was negotiated with the intention of reducing the need for costly and repetitive negotiations on any change of office. It was a very difficult article that could be agreed upon. You insisted that we give up our bargaining rights. The agency kept telling us that AFGE had given it up, so we had to do it as well. We resisted and we finally won on this point. The sharing of office and the hotel industry will be the future. We expect office space problems if the Agency decides to reduce the number of telework employees.
With respect to the respondent`s final defence, based on the Data Protection Act, 5 U.S.C Section 552a, in accordance with the position of the General Counsel and Charging Party, I believe that the Authority has not renounced its position, that the release of disciplinary action against employees is not necessarily excluded by the Privacy Act. (6) In accordance with the General Counsel and Charging Party I note that the public interest in the disclosure of the disciplinary action required against employees for the disclosure of tax data outweighs the personal interests of the respondents` staff. As noted above, the information referred to in section 7114 (4) 7114 was necessary to enable the Union to adequately represent the worker concerned, both in the oral response and in a subsequent arbitration proceeding. In addition, the disclosure of the requested information would also enable the Union to determine whether the respondent complies with the existing provisions of the collective agreements which require consistency in penalties for similar offences or offences. While it is recognized that the respondent`s staff would not appreciate the disclosure of disciplinary action against her, the protocol does not contain anything to indicate a wide dissemination of the information. The Union has requested the information in order to prepare the oral response and subsequent arbitration, and there is no evidence that the information would be used for purposes that would be incompatible with this application. See U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region, Burlington, Massachusetts, 38 FLRA 1623, 1631, the Authority relying on similar considerations when it found that the Union`s disciplinary information needs outweigh the data protection interests of employees. Despite the fact that the various residents of the Union receive copies of all the disciplinary measures that take place in their respective jurisdictions, in accordance with the provisions of the collective agreements, I cannot, as the respondent argued, conclude that Local 99 is isolated from the search for the requested information.
