NTEU won a FSIP decision in early August requiring the agency (EPA, Region 7) to not only give unit employees cubicle walls that had 46 inch high solid material bases, but to also add 22 additional inches of opaque glass.  Management opposed the proposal as too costly, citing a projected cost of $176,000.  It offered only 46 inch high bases with another 11 inches of clear glass. FSIP bought the union argument that the increased privacy would likely increase productivity.
