Against our better judgment we have decided to give in to staff demands for time off during the holidays. We probably could have coerced the Marketing, PR, IT, News, Editorial and Admin staffs into staying, but HR, Legal, Security, and Legislation seemed intent on walking out. They apparently believe that just because we have posted 600 pieces since starting in September 2011 (and having articles read nearly 2,000 times in one, recent, three day period) that they deserve a day off. So, we are shutting down until early January. Soon after we come back we hope to roll out some very meaty postings, such as–

  • Attorney Fees Not Allowed in Debt Collection Cases
  • What the 2015 LM Reports Say About A Union
  • When Overtime Violations Do NOT Merit Back Pay
  • How Agencies Limit Union Attorney Fees
  • The Right To Assign: The FLRA Monkey On Your Back
  • Why National Unions Must Renegotiate Term Contracts Often
  • National Union Presidents As Sun Gods and PDI
  • Getting Vacation Costs Reimbursed When Agencies Cancel Leave
  • What Can Save IRS: The IRS, VA and GSA Scandals
