The votes have been counted and the results are in. ODAR NCAC East professional employees over chosen NTEU as their exclusive representative by a strong margin with 74 percent of those voting choosing NTEU.
NTEU President Tony Reardon issued a statement welcoming each of the more than 200 ODAR employees in the professional unit to NTEU. NCAC East joins fellow ODAR colleagues who are already represented by NTEU in Chapter 224. This is a victory for NCAC East!
Now the professional employees at NCAC East have a voice in Congress, in the courts, and in the workplace when managers make critical decisions affecting their work life. NTEU is committed to representing NCAC East on a host of issues such as telework, hours of work, leave issues, appraisals, and promotions.
NTEU 224 welcomes our colleagues at NCAC East to our Chapter -- we encourage you all to familiarize yourselves with our contract.
We urge every ODAR employee to JOIN NTEU 224. The bigger the membership, the more powerful your voice in making positive changes to working conditions.
We look forward to working together in the upcoming year to address workplace issues and training Stewards to create a more effective working environment for all. Thank you again NCAC East for supporting NTEU and for the important work you do for our country. We are honored.
