NTEU and FDA have executed an addendum to the parties’ agreement regarding the development and implementation of a voluntary exit survey for employees separating from FDA. The addendum extends the survey to employees who are transferring between FDA centers but not separating from the agency. The purpose of extending the survey is to gain insight into employee experiences at the FDA centers.
Per the agreement, the survey will be administered by a third party, and survey data will be maintained in the aggregate. The agency is required to provide quarterly aggregate reports to NTEU to identify any trends or patterns relating to employee transfers between centers. In the event that the agency proposes to modify the survey, it is required to seek pre-decisional input from NTEU and bargain to the extent required by law.
