5.  Management agrees to keep the Union informed of progress in the development of new training and education resources, particularly Union proposed courses. 

6.  Changes to the program shall be subject to bargaining.  Bargaining over the AFMCI 36-202, Logistics Professional Development Program, will commence after the initial coordination and reconciliation has been completed.   

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