Union leaders need to constantly update their bargaining demands–and FEDSMILL.com wants to help. The members’ needs change constantly as do their agency leaders.  New technology reshapes their work environment regularly, as do annual budget fights . Even the law and regulations mutate, although at a painfully slow pace. Negotiators need to keep up with all that or risk losing the support of the employees.  So, we are beginning a series of postings that deal with the most important contract clauses union negotiators should be pursuing today. Although no one contract we have read has all these issues addressed, most can be found in some contracts. Ideally, we can help you make them common throughout the federal government. The postings will be titled with the words CRITICAL CONTRACT CLAUSES, which will be followed by the topic. The first in this series appears immediately below. If you have any thoughts as to how we can make these postings more helpful, just send us back a comment.
