Alert! Internal and External Job Openings (Article 13)

In the recent National Mid-Term Negotiations, NTEU was able to strengthen the
requirement for “first consideration” and allow employees to receive more information
upon request. When management announces jobs internally and externally at the same
time Article 13 Section 1B states, “The employer has determined that it will provide first
consideration to IRS employees for its bargaining unit vacancies by considering the Best
Qualified (BQ) candidates at all grades for which a position is announced.”
If you apply for these positions and you make the BQ list, but are not selected, and
management selects from the external announcement you have the right to request
information specific to the qualifications that management used in making their selection.
The information is ONLY available by request. The information will include:
  • Reasons for non-selection from the BQ list
  • Methods to improve chances for future vacancies
  • Qualifications used to select the external applicant
Article 13 Section 7 G2
“If the Employer elects to select a candidate from outside the IRS, the counseling will
include reasons for the selection (e.g., the candidate displayed superior communication
skills in the interview, the candidate possessed more job-related skills) and suggestions
on how the employee may be better prepared for similar opportunities in the Future.”

UPDATE: DAY SHIFT DATA SPACE CHANGE

NTEU is in agreement with a proposal to move the Data Team 203 from their current location. The benefits of this move will be twofold.

  • Business Reason: This will align the permanent employees together
  • Employee Satisfaction: The employees WILL NOT have to share desks when the seasonal employees return to work

The employees will receive 1 hour of Administrative time to move and if they need more time they will address this individually with their manager. They will move one row at a time so as to minimize the disruption to the area. The move will take place approximately, during the last week of January. If you have any questions please contact the Union office (801) 620-6511
