Urgent Action Required!

The IRS informed NTEU that it was suspending payment of all awards as a result of the sequester last week. NTEU immediately notified the IRS that we are invoking our right to bargain over any suspension of bargaining unit performance awards programs. NTEU fought hard for these awards programs. They are an important part of compensation at the IRS and it is unfair to suspend these awards when employees have worked hard to earn them.

Please provide national NTEU with your home e-mail address by clicking here to receive information on this issue outlining what you can do to help, and regular updates on the awards situation. You may do this now on your government computer, in accordance with the agency's policy on limited personal use of the internet.

If you're not sure if NTEU has your home e-mail address, please provide it now.

 Sequestration Survey Results


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.”
