Our mission: To organize federal employees to work together to ensure that every federal employee is treated with dignity and respect.
So how do we do that?
We regularly meet with representatives from management to discuss issues and hopefully avoid problems.
We negotiate and enforce the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
We bargain on changes to the workplace
We file grievances if management is not holding up their end of the bargain
We provide information to members that management doesn't
We ask "anonymous" pointed questions "It has come to the union's attention that . . ."
We provide guidance for performance evaluations, or we can sit in on the evaluation
We attend "all-hands" meetings and ask questions that individuals may not feel comfortable asking
Outside of our immediate workplace:
NTEU is the voice of the federal workforce on Capitol Hill, in the courts, at the bargaining table and in the media. We fight for fair pay and benefits, improved working conditions and other issues that affect the working lives of federal employees.
