Air Force Lodging Program (17 May 2001)

1. 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 MOA regarding AFI 34-246 as it applies to bargaining unit members in matters covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA).

2. When adequate on base quarters are available for bargaining unit employees on temporary duty away from their designated post of duty, the bargaining unit employee will have the option, except in unusual circumstances, as determined by appropriate supervisory personnel, of securing other lodging where smoking is permitted in the rooms. If employees elect to stay in a smoking facility, for the purpose of smoking, their reimbursement for lodging is limited to the cost of on base lodging and the employee is solely responsible for any difference between the on base cost and cost associated with staying off base. Under no circumstance will the agency be held liable for any damages, direct or indirect, or ill effects associated with an employee electing to be quartered in a smoking environment.

3. Bargaining unit employees are not required to provide their social security number in order to make a reservation with or check into on-base lodging.

4. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. Chapter 71 are available to the Parties if either party believes the other has failed to comply with any of the requirements of this MOA.
