Changes in Working Conditions

Before TTB management can make any changes in your conditions, the agency has to bargain with NTEU Chapter 305 over the changes pursuant to 5 USC 7114 and Article 39 of the Bargaining Unit Agreement.  If TTB makes changes without notice to the Chapter, any change would be an unfair labor practice (5 U.S.C. 7116).
Types of changes requiring notice and bargaining:

VOIP Soft Phones and telephone lines
New equipment – printers, chairs, computers
Work hours
Travel issues
Methods to perform your work
Time for lunch break
Software to perform your jobs
New Orders or Directives
Even changes in things like where the water bottle or coffee pot sits.

This list is not all-inclusive. It just provides examples. If a change has occurred in your office or flexiplace office, please notify Renee Yankey, President, or Tim Foster, Chief Steward, immediately.
