To all NCUA Bargaining Unit Employees,
We are aware that false information has been circulated indicating that NTEU prevented the issuance of administrative leave during the recent disasters resulting from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. This is incorrect. The Collective Bargaining Agreement between NCUA and NTEU, as well as OPM guidance, gives management great latitude to grant administrative leave for personal emergencies resulting from weather related emergencies and the aftermath. We are disheartened to hear that NCUA did not grant impacted employees all of the administrative leave they are permitted and forced them to jump through unnecessary hoops for a limited amount of leave. NTEU plans to attempt to address this concern with NCUA management and in the upcoming CBA reopener.

NTEU is watching these bills that could affect
FIRREA Agency Employees

The NTEU Legislation Department is closely monitoring these bills and is sharing with members of Congress what the impacts could be on our members. The Committee Chairman has expressed a strong commitment to bringing forward legislation to weaken consumer and depositor protections and to make changes in law requested by the banks and investment houses. Such legislation, which might be an amalgamation of some of the bills considered yesterday, certainly could also be a vehicle for making changes detrimental to FIRREA employees. Be assured we will take action to oppose any measures that negatively affect NTEU members.
