What you should know about the Executive Orders.

Executive Orders 13836, 13837, and 13838 present adverse representational issues for eight of our metal trades councils: Tidewater, Portsmouth, Hawaii, Bremerton, Philadelphia, Indian Wells, Baltimore, and the Washington Area Metal Trades Council.

These orders systematically obstruct and impede our unions? ability to collectively bargain, they substantially restrict the use of official time, and they charge us for use of office space.

Under these orders, workers are now responsible for filing their own grievances and can only meet with their union before or after work and during lunch. And, we now have limited access and contact with workers on the base, yard or facility.

Executive Order 13836 Collective Bargaining Procedures

  • Federal government to do more to apply labor statute in a manner consistent with effective and efficient government
  • Set up a government-wide Labor-Relations Working Group to facilitate sharing of information on bargaining issues and proposed language on important topics
  • Set time frames for completion of bargaining ground rules and full term contracts*
  • Required exchange of written not oral proposals*
  • Directed agencies not to bargain on permissive topics*
    *Found invalid 8/24/18
