Local 12 and DOL executed the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) (2020), which may be found under Member Resources under "Executed CBA 2020," along with a summary of its provisions and a brief PowerPoint Presentation on it.
Dear Local 12 members:
Senator Cardin is in dialogue with other Congressional leaders about the fate of BLS, in particular whether to support moving moving BLS out to Suitland. Please contact his office immediately with the message below.
We are asking all BLS members, all BLS employees, all Local 12 members and all other Maryland residents to do so now.
Dear Local 12 Members:
Please stay safe and keep checking for updates on the Coronavirus and its potential impact on federal workers:
Follow safe hygiene practices to reducing the chances of transmission;
Look to DOL guidance on the potential impact on your work;
If you are sick (e.g.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day, is a time to reflect on the meaning and message of his life and the mutually supporting relationship between civil and labor rights in building a just and fair society for the benefit of all.
The 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement between Local 12 and USDOL remains in effect under bargaining groundrules. USDOL requested to reopen bargaining and, in the past year, the parties have reached tentative agreement on 28 articles, with the Official Time article to still be finalized. Support Local 12 in fighting for your rights!
Greetings Local 12 Sisters and Brothers,
Over the past few weeks and months I am sure you have heard the term Shared Services throughout the Department. The Shared Services Initiative is focused on the following areas: Human Resources, Information Technology, Procurement and Personnel Security. It will affect everyone in the Department in some way.
