Labor Management Forum Website
The Department of Commerce Labor Management Forum's website is: http://hr.commerce.gov/Employees/LaborManagementForum/index.htm.
“The greatest benefit of the Labor Management Forum is that it vastly increases areas of bargaining potential in all levels of the NWSEO,” said NWSEO President Dan Sobien. Under the charter, NWSEO officers will have an increased ability to negotiate over permissive areas, including the numbers, types, and grades of employees or positions assigned to any organizational subdivision, work project, or tour of duty, and on the technology, methods, and means of performing work. The change is designed to help streamline the Department of Commerce, increase its efficiency and save money.
