    John and others,
    Bargaining unit (union) employees are not part of the organization, they are merely hourly rated interval workers. Nobody seems to understand that.

    We at the Trenton NJ P&DC were informed of the FEHB webinars in a service talk earlier this week. We were also reminded that participation in the webinars is of course, strictly limited to employees who are off the clock. This is absolutely reprehensible. This comes right out of the same mouths of the managers who recently made such a big noise about turning over a new page in employee relations by claiming to finally realize that employees are people and not just human capital, not just another asset of the company. It did not take long for the true colors of management to shine through once again.

    To require employees to be off the clock to receive information about something as important as our health benefits is a disgrace and management should hang their collective heads in shame.
