The FDA has provided NTEU with a courtesy notice announcing the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research’s (CDER) plan to issue a voluntary and anonymous survey monkey questionnaire to all CDER employees to better gauge the work environment in the organization, including harassment, discrimination, bullying, and civility.
The FDA anticipates distributing the survey electronically to bargaining unit employees on or about October 25, 2018. A copy of the survey is available for review upon request to your chapter president.
The agency has stated that if the FDA/CDER decides to make any changes to bargaining unit employees’ conditions of employment based on the survey results, it will provide NTEU with notice and an opportunity to bargain consistent with applicable law and its obligations under the HHS-NTEU Collective Bargaining Agreement.
If you have any questions or comments regarding the proposed changes, please share them with your chapter president expeditiously.
