Per the Division of Import Operations (DIO) Program Development and Implementation Branch and the Southwest Regional Office, the Time Reporting Requirements for Import Entry Reviewers procedure is not intended for bargaining unit employee (BUE) use.
NTEU brought to the Agency’s attention their requirement to notify the Union and offer opportunity to bargain (per Article 3 of the CBA) the proposal of DIO Advisory #5, Time Reporting Requirements for Import Entry Reviewers, before implementation. As a result, the Agency returned the status quo ante in compliance with federal labor law.
Please let me or another Union representative know immediately if management is requiring you to follow this procedure.
I welcome your questions and comments on this subject.
