Council 222 is primarily responsible for negotiating over
proposed changes in working conditions that impact employees
nationwide. Thus, we bargain over implementation of new technology,
reorganizations and realignments, reasonable accommodation
and hardship transfer policies, and more. The includes notices
from management of proposed changes, and the Council's bargaining
proposals. Until the parties meet at the bargaining table,
the Council's proposals may be added to and amended. Use the
bargaining page to keep track of the latest proposed changes
at HUD. If issues are important to you, give your suggestions
to your Local President.
Contracting Out - Under the
FAIR Act, the Council has the right to challenge the positions that management
lists as commercial for the purpose of contracting out. Member input is crucial
to our challenges. Look to the contracting out page to find information about
management plans to contract out your work. If we haven't challenged the
inclusion of your job, or our challenge for your job could be better, give your
suggestions to your Local President.
- This is a private area
of our website, providing resources to Local officers and stewards. It includes
research systems and other data than can help your Local win grievances and
arbitrations. It also includes financial data and minutes from Council
Executive Board meetings. Because the Council 222 website is a public website,
but not all information should be shared with the public (or management), this
part of the website requires password access.
- Generally, Locals enforce the contract which is bargained by the Council.
Sometimes, however, management violations of the contract harm employees in
more than one Local. For example, when management issued multiple telework
policie, that harmed employees throughout the nation. The Council filed a
Grievance of the Parties. Copies of current and recent Grievances of the
Parties can be found at this page. Look here to keep track of grievances that
may seek to enforce your rights in the workplace.
- This page will have reference material on lobbying, the
federal budget process and more. We will also post samples
of letters sent by our members to their Senators and Representatives.
Send copies of letters you have sent to Congress for possible
inclusion in the Library.
- The resource you may be looking for could be here!
There are: copies of Position Descriptions (we're slowly building an electronic
library of PDs); weekly listings of all vacancy
announcements posted for HUD jobs; copies of the Council's testimony before
Congressional Committees; a page dedicated to HUD allies and more. It's
information to use and information to know.
- When employees are selected to participate in HUD surveys, management should provide the union with advance notice (see Article 3, Section 3.08 of the Contract). You can find the surveys and notice of them, here.
ULPs (Unfair Labor Practices)
- The labor relations statute creates rights and obligations
on the part of unions, management and employees. If either
labor or management fails to perform its obligation to the
other party, an unfair labor practice (ULP) may be filed.
A ULP charge may also be filed if either labor or management
interferes with the rights each has been given under the statute.
Employees can protect their rights under the statute by filing
ULP charges against labor or management. For more go to the
Federal Labor Relations Authority website: http://www.flra.gov/index.html
