According to the external arbitrator, HHS committed a “clear and obvious violation” of its 2010 collective agreement with NTEU, arguing that it is premature for the agency to unilaterally implement the terms of a Federal Service Impasses Panel decision before intercepting a new collective agreement with the union. The new proposal reads: “The Agency will not set a minimum number of days per week for employees under telework contracts to report to their official construction site. However, staff should expect to report to the official construction site and service at least four days a week. For employees with a compressed work plan, the employee`s regular days off for the purposes of this language are counted as a day outside the official construction site. .
