News for 14 June 2004
On Monday, June 7th, 41 unions representing DoD employees met with DoD and
OPM officials concerning the NSPS. This meeting was the result of the
extensive grassroots mobilization effort undertaken by the unions and the
solidarity of the 41 unions in forcing DoD to withdraw their February draft
of their proposed labor relations system for NSPS.
While DoD firmly expected to establish a process in which they would seek
union input, the unions expected confirmation that certain assurances
provided to NP John Gage and AFL-CIO President John Sweeney, were
"We start with a clean piece of paper" said Charlie Abell, he added "We have
a new team and new approach".
While DoD sought implementation of some team based process for further
discussion, the unions held firm that until trust and a mutual understanding
of the problems that DoD hopes to correct, and with a firm understanding and
respect for principles the union holds dear, the group will continue to meet
in general session.
The next meeting will be held June 29th. The DoD Union Coalition plans on
meeting June 28th to review and discuss DoD's list of problems they see with
the current system.
