Any subpart of this letter not responded too is work in progress, DOD/OPM has been given concepts on these issues and they will soon be published as the Drafts are finalized.
DoD/OPM Responds to Union Recommendations on Scope of Bargaining
Read the response at www.afgedefcon.org ! This response includes:
UDWC responds to and expresses their concerns and disappointment to the May 10th &11th DOD/OPM response letters for the Unions. Clearly our concerns have been overlooked by the inaccurate reply that DOD submitted to us. They have not preserved the statutory rights afforded to us. Their proposed Regulation totally eliminates the statutory right to bargain, reducing the statutory scope of bargaining to zero; this is patently unlawful. The coalition’s proposal does not retain the status quo with respect to scope of bargaining; UDWC also interprets chapter 71 provisions to afford new flexibility.
New UDWC legal assertions & concepts are given to DOD/OPM

The minutes will reflect the brothers true feelings!
In other words DOD and OPM reads this site more then Union workers, because you get the message at home on E-mail and they haven’t a clue of the power we have. Solidarity
