I share this with you as a caution to remain vigilant in dealings with management. Agencies often seem either unable or unwilling to honor agreements. That is why I urge all of you to use the full force of PEF resources to advise you in the development of any “agreement” with your agency, particularly in regard to possible work reassignments and closures.
The office of the PEF President, your field representative and the PEF Civil Service, Contract and Legal Departments are committed to assisting members during these challenging times. As union leaders, we must work together to ensure this does not happen again.
