Contact us today to find out more about us. A union will allow more than 1,000 Puget Sound Naval Shipyard employees to recover compensation periods lost due to a change in Ministry of Defence policy. The shipyard in Bremerton, Washington, repairs ships for the Pacific fleet. In October 2003, it merged with the IMF on the Bangor Submarine base, approximately 29 miles away. the shipyard and the IMF are located in Kitsap County, Washington. The merger has created a unique maintenance organization in which repairs are carried out both at the farm level and at the intermediate level. Four labour organizations, representing a total of some 7,700 people, are involved in this conflict. BMTC is made up of 12 unions representing a total of about 5,000 employees in the collective agreements unit; Their collective agreement is in effect until June 14, 2006. Local 12, IFPTE represents about 1,800 employees; parties are currently renegotiating their KBA. Local 6, PEPSA, is a bargaining unit that employs approximately 150 people; a recently renegotiated CBA is currently available to the Ministry of Defence for review by the Head of the Agency. IAMAW represents about 800 people, most of them non-professional; its CBA was due to expire in March 2004, but was extended. The union submitted a charge of unfair labour to the Federal Labour Office over the rule change.
This led to negotiations with the Ministry of Defence, the Defense Finance Accounting Service and the shipyard`s parent command. Executive Order (EO) 13836, Developing Efficient, Effective, and Cost-Reducing Approaches to Federal Sector Collective Bargaining, signed by the President on May 25, 2018, requires agencies to submit any long-term collective agreement (CBA) and its expiry date within 30 days of the CBA`s entry into force. EO 13836 also requires OPM to make these CBAs available to the public on the internet. This promotes transparency by allowing the public to consult the types of agreements between federal agencies and industry unions. Agencies are also required to submit arbitration awards to OPM within 10 business days of receipt. OPM has issued a memorandum on the publication of the CBA database, which contains guidelines on agency requirements for CBAs and arbitration awards. The agreement was reached after three multi-day meetings in Washington between March and May of this year. Negotiations on the implementation of the agreement on the ground were concluded on 6 August between the union and the SSSP. The scheme will only apply to about 1,400 workers covered by IFPTE, one of only four unions at the federal level that challenge the policy and reach an agreement with the Ministry of Defence and Naval Sea Systems Command, Sprague said. Under Section 7122 (a) of the Statute, an arbitral award is defective when it is contrary to the single law, rule or regulation; or it is deficient for other reasons similar to those of the federal courts in the relationship between the private sector and employment services. After careful consideration of the entire protocol and the Authority`s precedent, the Authority concludes that the award of arbitration is not insufficient for the reasons set out in the exceptions and set out in Section 7122 (a).
