This includes addition or removal of the DD2365, any additions to the PD, and any documentation that is to be added to the Supervisor's Employee Brief (AF Form 971).

6. Affected employees who need to make/change personal arrangements (e.g. child/elder care) may request to use available workplace flexibilities (e.g. schedule changes, unscheduled leave, etc.) to assist until permanent arrangements can be made. Management will maximize the use of available workplace flexibilities during the initial 30 days of this change. Additionally, the employee is allowed to make arrangements such that any work which may require the employee be called back to the workplace outside of his/her duty hours can be performed by another qualified person until permanent arrangements can be made.

The Union will be provided a list of impacted employees that will include the employee's installation, to/from expeditionary coding change, the employee's series, and the employee's grade within 20 work days of the signing of this MOA. The Union will be notified once all expeditionary coding changes have been completed in DCPDS.

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