Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

Are the performance crediting provisions in the reduction in force regulations negotiable?

No. In giving agencies some discretion on performance crediting, the reduction in force regulations make clear that any decisions must be uniformly and consistently applied throughout the competitive area. Since competitive areas normally also include non-bargaining unit employees, there is no obligation to bargain on otherwise negotiable proposals that are aimed at the entire competitive area. Management is not required to negotiate with the union the conditions of employment of non-bargaining unit employees.
