Does an agency have to negotiate implementation of appraisal program changes with its union?

If the proposed program covers bargaining unit employees, the agency is obligated to notify the union and afford it the opportunity to negotiate on the impact and implementation of the appraisal program. In addition to the agency's legal requirements, OPM encourages agencies to involve employees in the design and implementation of their appraisal program.
