MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

Regarding

Official time for pre-decisional involvement (PDI) of union representatives In the expedited review and negotiation

Of

Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC) Manual 21-102, “Depot Maintenance Manual” Draft, dated August 2014

 

  1. This agreement is entered into by American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214, hereafter referred to as the “Union” and the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as “Management” with regard to the development of subject manual as it affect bargaining unit members covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA).

 

  1. AFSC Manual (AFSCMAN) 21-102 contains detailed instructions for implementing Air Force Instruction (AFI) 21-102, “ Depot Maintenance Management,” dated 18 July 2012.  The AFI is currently being bargained (i.e. not yet in effect). The AFI prescribes roles and responsibilities, while the AFSC manual elaborates the applicable procedures. Existing procedures are documented in the AFMC Supplement to AFI 21-101 ( 15 Nov 2011), implemented under the negotiated MOA of 3 Feb 2012. Traditionally, Command-level bargaining commences when an implementing directive is fully developed. In this case, the huge size of the draft manual (over 800 pages) recommends a pre-decisional involvement (PDI) approach. The Union is willing to review this manual before finalization. This approach embraces the PDI directive of Executive Order 13522 and will achieve the government service improvement goal of timelier implementation.

 

  1. The parties agree that, within one week of the signing of this agreement, the Union will  provide AFMC/A1 the names of two depot maintenance representatives for each of the following three locals/bases: Local 916 (Tinker), Local 987 (Robins), and Local 1592 (Hill).  These representatives will serve as the draft AFSCMAN review team. Each representative shall be granted up to 40 hours per week for up to three weeks to complete a review of the AFSCMAN and submit input to AFGE Council 214. The three weeks will start when the functional and the AFGE C-214 representative notify A1KL that they are ready for the field review (NLT 2 weeks after signing of this agreement). An additional 20 hours of official time may be authorized for one representative at each of the three bases to collaborate with C-214 over the following two weeks. AFGE Council 214 will provide a list of union interests within two weeks of the local review. These interests will provide a basis for interest based bargaining that will commence after completion of the AFSCMAN.

 

  1. The names of the union reviewers will be provided to AFMC/ A 1KL by AFGE Council 214 no later than one week from the date of this agreement.  The AFMC LRO or his/her designee will advise the local LROs of the persons identified.  The local LROs will arrange for release of the named employees for the specified amount of time authorized.   In the event the mission may prohibit release, any denial will be coordinated through AFMC/A4.

 

5.  To  expedite  the  overall process, local management  will provide two hard-copies of the new draft AFSCMAN and  the  current AFMC supplement to each union  Local  before  the review process begins.

 

6.  All remedies available under the MLA  or 5 U.S.C. Chapter 71 will remain  available  to the Parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)              18 October 2013

On

Air Force Instruction (AFI) 91-203, “Air Force Consolidated Occupational Safety Instruction”

 

 

  1. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, and collectively as the Parties, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject instructions as they apply to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the Parties.

 

  1. This MOA implements AFI 91-203 after partnered review with Management.  AFI 91-203 replaces Air Force Occupational Safety and Health (AFOSH) Standard 91-501 and all other 91-series AFOSH standards and implements substantive changes directed at assuring safety of the workforce.  This document updates and merges Air Force safety principles, concepts, and program elements into a single consolidated occupational safety and health document.  Further, it incorporates the safety directives of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the principles and concepts of other national consensus safety agencies.

 

  1. Implementation of this MOA is representational of the Parties’ continued partnered commitment to safety.  Management recognizes the Union, and BUEs, as prime and welcome contributors toward the identification and solution of safety issues.  The parties agree that safety issues identified while this AFI is in effect shall be addressed by mutual agreement, and bargained in accordance with application regulations and negotiated agreements.

 

  1. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns related to the implementation and operations within this instruction cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

On

Automated Time Attendance and Production System (ATAAPS) Implementation for Electronic Management Tracking System (eMTS) Users: Supplement to ATAAPS MOA, Dated 7 February 2013

 

  1. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, and collectively as the Parties, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding implementation of ATAAPs as a replacement for eMTS as it applies to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the Parties.

 

  1. ATAAPS is a web-based application providing online entry, update, concurrence, and certification of time and attendance data for civilian employees of various Department of Defense agencies.  On 7 February 2013, the Parties entered into an MOA implementing the general provisions of ATAAPS.  AFMC intends to expand the ATAAPS program to employees using eMTS, and in accordance with the 7 February 2013 MOA, further negotiation must occur when converting employees already using automated time attendance systems to ATAAPS, thus necessitating this supplemental MOA. 

 

  1. This MOA implements usage of ATAAPS as the preferred system of time attendance tracking for BUEs currently using eMTS at the following installations:

 

  1. Hill Air Force Base (AFB)
  2. Air Force Metrology and Calibration Program Office (AFMETCAL) - Heath, Ohio
  3. Tinker AFB
  4. Kirtland AFB
  5. Robins AFB
  6. Wright-Patterson AFB

 

  1. Management agrees to the same provisions found in the 7 February 2013 MOA to employees converting to ATAAPS.

 

  1. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns related to the implementation cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

On

AFI 91-202, “The USAF Mishap Prevention Program”

(Revision dated 5 August 2011 incorporating Change 1, 20 March 2012 and including AFI 91-202, AFMC Supplement 1)

 

 

1.  The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject instruction as it applies to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.

 

2.  AFI 91-202 establishes mishap prevention program requirements, assigns responsibilities for program elements and contains program management information.  The Union fully embraces the goals of this program and regards itself as a partner in all workplace safety initiatives.  The AFI deals predominantly with management roles, processes, and program direction, which pose no issues to bargain.  One exception is the clarified role of the Unit Safety Representative (USR), who assists the unit commander by being knowledgeable of safety requirements, by assisting unit personnel, and by keeping the unit commander informed of safety hazards, safety campaigns, and local safety and health practices.  Because USR duties are performed on a part-time, as needed basis in addition to regular job duties, they are considered collateral duties.  This MOA implements AFI 91-202, Interim Changes and AFMC Supplements subject to USR assignment provisions detailed below. 

 

3.  The appointment of a bargaining unit employee as primary or alternate USR will be documented with an addendum to the employee’s original position description (PD) with a collateral duty position statement.  The attached template provides basic USR duties and requirements, but may be modified to address unit specific issues.
 

4.  The supervisor of each bargaining unit USR will ensure this information is attached to the employee’s PD for the duration of the collateral duty assignment.  When duties are rotated to another employee, the supervisor will remove the statement from the past USR’s main PD.  The supervisor will submit these changes to the servicing classification specialist for processing and inclusion with the employee’s position description.

 

5.  Subject to the provisions of Article 15 and Air Force policy, the successful achievements of employees performing as USRs may serve as the basis for recognition appropriately recommended by the supervisor and approved by the award-approving official.

 

6. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. Chapter 71 will remain available to the Parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

Air Force Instruction (AFI) 40-102, “Tobacco Use in the Air Force,” Dated 26 March 2012

Date: 
Fri, 06/28/2013

 

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

ON

Air Force Instruction (AFI) 40-102, “Tobacco Use in the Air Force,”

Dated 26 March 2012

 

1.   The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject instruction as it applies to bargaining unit employees covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.  This agreement hereby rescinds the following MOA’s:  Smoking Policy at AFLC Installations, dated 14 November 1986; Smoking in Air Force Facilities, 29 March 1978, dated 29 April 1987; AFR 30-27, Smoking in Air Force Facilities, dated 1 November 1988; and, AFMC Tobacco Reduction Policy, dated 1 April 1994.   

 

2.   AFI 40-102 outlines policy aimed toward oversight of tobacco use on Air Force Installations to minimize the adverse impact of tobacco use on health, mission readiness, and unit performance.  AFGE Council 214 supports effective measures to protect employees from exposure to second hand tobacco smoke (STS).  The Union also supports the rights of employees who opt to use tobacco products and their desire to do so while at work on AFMC bases.  This agreement is to ensure that a balance is maintained between the rights of non-smokers to a smoke free environment and those of employees who choose to use legal tobacco products.  The parties recognize where these interest conflict, an employee’s right to breath smoke free air shall prevail.

 

3.   Designated Tobacco Areas (DTAs) are defined in this agreement as Smoking Areas that have been bargained for employees to use if they opt to smoke tobacco products.

 

  1. DTAs will be conveniently located near work areas a minimum of 50 feet from entryways and air intakes so as to prevent STS exposure to non-smokers.  Specific locations of DTAs are authorized for local bargaining.  DTAs near an explosive safety area must be approved at local level through base Safety.

 

  1. While all DTAs should be reassessed for compliance with the AFI, the Agency agrees to allow existing smoking shelters to be left in their current location.  Any DTAs without smoking shelters in place (hard structure) will be relocated to comply with the 50 foot requirement, unless it is not possible due to some physical limitation (e.g., cluster of buildings, trees/woods, road/flight line).  In all cases, relocated DTAs shall be approved locally by mutual agreement of the parties.  Any new DTAs or shelters will comply with the 50 foot requirements.

 

4.   The use of smokeless tobacco products (defined as any tobacco product that consists of cut, ground, powdered, or leaf tobacco) shall not be restricted to DTAs, since this would subject users to second hand smoke.  Smokeless tobacco use (excluding e-cigarettes) will be permitted in all workplace areas (inside and outside) subject to reasonable safety and sanitary conditions.  Any safety issues relative to the use of smokeless tobacco products in the work areas are subject to local bargaining.  E-cigarettes are defined as battery-operated products designed to deliver nicotine, flavor and other chemicals.  They turn nicotine, which is highly addictive, and other chemicals into a vapor that is inhaled by the user.  E-cigarettes are not restricted to DTAs and are allowed to be used outdoors, at a reasonable distance from building entry/egress points and users should not gather around these areas to prevent exposure to passers-by. 

 

5.   No restrictions shall apply to the use of nicotine gum or nicotine patches, as their use presents no hazard to fellow employees or to the public. 

 

6.   The MTF “campus” shall be defined as the area within 50 feet of the primary medical facility.  By mutual agreement, parties at the local level may alter this definition but smoking will only be allowed a minimum of 50 feet from entryways and air intakes so as to prevent STS exposure to non-smokers.  DTAs must be located for minimum visibility and should be easily accessible.

 

7.   Child care facilities and playgrounds shall be smoke free.  DTAs established subsequent to this agreement will be located a minimum of 50 feet from playgrounds and must limit visibility, provided they are easily accessible.

 

8.   Tobacco use shall be prohibited in common thoroughfares such as sidewalks, etc. but generally permitted in large open outdoor areas, i.e. golf courses, parks, etc. outside a 50 foot radius from buildings.  Employees shall be free to smoke inside their automobiles. 

 

9.   Restrictions on smoking while in military uniform shall not apply to Air Reserve Technicians (ARTs) when serving in a civilian capacity, until such time as bargaining is completed for AFI 36-801, which proposes ARTs wear the military uniform while performing civilian duties as an ART.

 

10.  Smokers and non-smokers alike shall be afforded the same break opportunities consistent with good work practices and the accomplishment of the mission. 

 

11.  Management agrees to provide smoking cessation classes and nicotine replacement therapy supplies (e.g. nicotine patches) at no cost to employees who choose to quit smoking, subject to the availability of funds for this purpose.           

 

12.  All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

ON

Air Force Instruction (AFI) 32-7040, Air Quality Compliance and Resource Management,

Air Force Guidance Memorandum 1.2, dated 14 June 2013

Employee Vehicle Certification and Reporting System (ECARS) Policy

 

1.   The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject policy as it applies to bargaining unit employees covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.

 

2.   AFI 32-7040 outlines Air Force installation responsibilities for compliance with applicable air quality standards, including the Clean Air Act (CAA) of 1990, as amended.   Subject guidance memorandum calls on installations to comply with the CAA by enforcing state and local vehicle emissions requirements.  The regulation will have no impact on installations in regions not subject to vehicle emissions testing.  Installations in regions subject to vehicle emission testing must enforce the same standards on-base.  To document compliance, employees will be required to self-certify their vehicle meets state/local requirements.  Employees will file the AF Form 4434 on an annual basis to indicate compliance with the applicable state/local requirement that applies to the employees’ vehicle.  Where required, employees will execute the AF Form 4434 electronically.   Employees are not required to present applicable state/local certifications when executing the AF Form 4434.

 

3.   The list of affected installations is subject to change, based on local air quality and EPA approved state implementation plans.  As of the date of this MOA, the following AFMC installations with AFGE C214 BUEs are subject to emission testing requirements:

          a. Edwards AFB

          b. Hill AFB

          c. Kirtland AFB

          d. Robins AFB

 

4.   Employees will be given 90 days advance notice to attain compliance.

 

5.   Employees may be required to produce proof of applicable vehicle inspection and maintenance compliance certification (i.e., emissions test) when involved in a traffic violation or other base traffic stops.  Employees who have misplaced their certification but are otherwise compliant per ECARS, will be granted two workdays to furnish proof of compliance in the event the employee cannot tender proof immediately upon request. 

 

6.   All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if       concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

Air Force Contracting Installation Agency (AFICA) Centralization for Air Force Materiel Command’s (AFMC) Bargaining Unit Employees

Date:

10 July 2013

 

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT

On

Air Force Contracting Installation Agency (AFICA) Centralization for Air Force Materiel Command’s (AFMC) Bargaining Unit Employees

 

1.  The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, and collectively as the Parties, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement to address the impacts of subject centralization, as it applies to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the Parties.

 

2.  This restructure will consolidate installation support services under a Headquarters Air Force (HAF) field operating agency (FOA) for operational (base level) contracting.  The change will redesignate AFMC’s Enterprise Sourcing Group (ESG) as the new AFICA organization and change its status to a USAF- level FOA.  All authorized manpower and functions will transfer from ESG to AFICA.  The change will affect two primary locations:  HQ AFSOC’s Contracting Division (A7K) at Hurlburt Field will become 765 Specialized Contracting Flight (SCONF); and ESG at Wright Patterson will become HQ AFICA.  HQ AFICA will oversee operating locations collocated with each MAJCOM headquarters.  It is anticipated this change will affect approximately 74 bargaining unit employees at Hurlburt and Wright Patterson.  For Hurlburt, no changes are anticipated other than office designations.  More significant changes are expected at Wright Patterson.

 

3.  This centralization is not designed to abolish positions or adversely impact the classification or grades of bargaining unit employees, however, some physical moves are anticipated and possible adjustments in regions/organizations serviced will occur.  These and other employee impacts will be bargained locally unless the centralization effort is later determined to affect BUEs at multiple bases. Management at each inclusive base will provide the local union president with information regarding the restructure.  The information will include all affected bargaining unit positions, incumbents of these positions (if available), current office symbol, and future office symbol.  Should the local union president request, organizational charts or pyramid diagrams will be provided.  Any changes in physical environment or location will also be identified.  Assuming the changes at Hurlburt Field AFB are no more than changes in office symbol, no local bargaining will be required.  If any changes at Wright-Patterson AFB are proposed, Local 1138 will be afforded the opportunity to bargain the changes in accordance with Article 33 of the MLA.    

 

4.  All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT
On the Stand Down of the

635th Combat Support Office at Hill, Tinker, and Robins AFBs

 

1.  The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject restructure as it applies to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.

 

2.  Based on a recent manpower study, the part number function of the 635 SCOW Combat Support Offices located at Robins, Tinker, and Hill will be realigned to the 448 SCMW as this is a supply chain management function.  This manpower study also directed a reduction in staffing at each location for the part number function.  To accommodate this change without an adverse effect on employees, management will attempt to place all BUEs “excessed” by this reduction at grade in available positions at their respected bases.

 

3. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.

MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA)

ON

Civil Engineer (CE) Transformation – Global Base Support

 

1.   The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding subject restructure as it applies to bargaining unit employees covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.

 

2.   The CE Transformation initiative is designed to standardize the structure, composition, and function of CE Groups/Directorates across AFMC, with slight variations based on the non-standard organizations (organic/contract mix).  The restructure will consolidate the seven existing CE flights into six.  This will be accomplished by abolishing three flights (Resources, Programs, and Asset Management) and integrating their functions into two newly established flights (Installation Management and Engineering).  This change is not designed to adversely impact the classification or grades of bargaining unit employees.  Should any of the aforementioned adverse impacts arise; the impact and implementation will be bargained at Command level.  Reassignments, changed supervisors, physical moves, and duty adjustments are anticipated.  New core documents may be developed. 

 

3.   Prior to implementation, management at the local level will notify the union of planned changes, identifying the affected positions and employees and the impacts (reassignment, physical move, etc.) that will result.  Management will afford the local union an opportunity to bargain the bargainable impacts in accordance with Article 33 of the MLA. 

 

4.   All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns cannot be cooperatively resolved.
