Council 222 is primarily responsible for negotiating over proposed changes in working conditions that impact employees nationwide. Thus, we bargain over implementation of new technology, reorganizations and realignments, reasonable accommodation and hardship transfer policies, and more. This page includes notices from management of proposed changes, and the Council's bargaining proposals. Until the parties meet at the bargaining table, the Council's proposals may be added to and amended. Look here to keep track of the latest proposed changes at HUD. If issues are important to you, give your suggestions to your local President.

Bargaining items are listed on pages by the year the bargaining was completed. The Supplements that pertain to the items are listed on the page with them and on a separate Contract Supplements page. See below links.

Handbook 755.1-Personnel Security and Suitability Policy and Procedures

Chief Negotiator - Jerry Gross
Update: The union filed two complaints with the FLRA because HUD did not respond properly to the Union´s request for information related to the proposed handbook. The Union demonstrated to the FLRA why the information and documentation requested was essential. The FLRA required HUD to provide all available information and to distribute the Notice as HUD´s public commitment to respond to Union requests for information in a timely manner in the future. The FLRA required HUD to send out a Notice to All Employees by email and to post it on bulletin boards to settle complaints of an unfair labor practice that the Union filed against HUD. The ULP documents are here and on our ULP page.
