Article 35 Technology
Posted On: Oct 29, 2013

Article 35

Technology

Section 1. General

Technology is dramatically impacting work processes throughout business and

Government nationwide. While innovations in technology are occurring so rapidly

it is impossible to anticipate them, the Department and the Union embrace the

opportunities created to improve work processes and employee skills.

To that end, the parties are committed to exploring ways to share information

about technology, while respecting each other’s statutory rights. That is,

Management maintains the right to determine the technology of the workplace and

the Union does not waive its statutory right to bargain in connection with the

impact on working conditions of bargaining unit employees resulting from changes

in technology. The Union’s right to bargain and Management’s obligation to

bargain are consistent with the Federal Labor-Management Relations Statute.

Section 2. Training on Technology

As the Department introduces technology, appropriate training (e.g., on-line

instruction, desk-aids, Help lines, mentors, and/or classroom sessions) will be

made available to employees affected by the introduction of new procedures and

technology. Additional training will be provided for employees who demonstrate

difficulty. If individual employees cannot adjust to the changes caused by the

introduction of technology or if the introduction results in the abolishment of some

positions and the establishment of others, the Department, consistent with

applicable regulations, will make every effort to utilize the skills and abilities of

those employees adversely affected by the changes.
