OPM Begins Notifying Victims of Background Investigations Breach

NTEU was briefed by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Acting Director Beth Cobert and was informed that notifications have begun for the approximately 21.5 million individuals affected by the background investigations breach announced in early June. Out of the 21.5 million individuals, 19.7 million are individuals that applied for a background investigation, and 1.8 million are primarily spouses or cohabitants of the applicants.

The union believes that it took far too long for the notifications to begin. For months, federal employees and their families endured a rollercoaster period of anxiety and vulnerability.

No Funding in Place; NTEU Launches Social Media Campaign

As the weekend approaches, there are just six days remaining for Congress to take action to fund the federal government by Sept. 30 to avoid a government shutdown.

This afternoon, NTEU was briefed by top officials at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regarding ongoing administration planning in the event of a funding lapse.

OMB said that federal agencies have been instructed to post shutdown plans on agency web sites by 2 p.m. today. OMB has given agencies the green light to begin unofficial notifications to individual employees today about their status as ‘excepted’ or ‘non-excepted’ employees in the case of a government shutdown next week. Formal furlough notices will not be issued until Oct 1. 

A clean continuing resolution (CR) was introduced in the Senate yesterday that would generally fund agencies at fiscal year 2015 levels, although agency discretionary funds would be cut by 0.21 percent. Funding under this CR would last until Dec. 11.

Congressional actions to avert a shutdown will likely not occur until next week. As of today, the Senate plans to begin holding votes on this new CR late Monday afternoon. With the resignation of House Speaker John Boehner, NTEU is urging Congress to stay focused on averting a shutdown.

Summertime has not meant a slow down for NTEU.

As August draws to a close and Congress prepares for a busy fall, NTEU is urging our members to contact their representatives on such urgent issues as the 2016 federal pay raise, attacks on retirement benefits and adequate protections following the OPM data breaches.

There are two ways to make your voice heard:

1. Call or visit your members of Congress in their home offices before the summer recess ends on Friday, Sept. 4. Visit our congressional directory for contact information.

2. Take a few moments to email your representatives. The more members speak out on an issue, the greater our chance to make a difference.

Tony Reardon Elected as NTEU National President 

Tony Reardon was elected today as the new National President of NTEU by delegates to the union’s 55th national convention. He received 89 percent of the votes cast.

[Tony Reardon]Reardon, a 25-year NTEU veteran, is currently the NTEU National Executive Vice President.

“I am honored and humbled by the confidence placed in me by NTEU delegates,” Reardon said.

The President-elect promised to work with NTEU chapter leaders and members to construct a shared vision for NTEU’s future. He believes strongly that federal employees deserve fair pay and a secure retirement.

"Our members do critical work for our country and I will fight for them and be vigorous in my defense of them. I promise to work hard each day to help them realize their aspirations for the future,” he said. 

[Jim Bailey]

 

NTEU delegates also chose Jim Bailey to serve as National Executive Vice President. Bailey also has more than 25 years of NTEU experience, most recently as Director of Field Operations. The new officers will be sworn in Thursday, the closing day of NTEU’s convention. Colleen M. Kelley is retiring after 16 years as National President.
