Posted by: admin | Posted on: juni 19th, 2023 | 0 Comments

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) recently reached a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). This agreement covers approximately 45,000 employees represented by AFGE at the SSA.

The new CBA includes several important provisions. One of the most significant is a pay increase of 2.6% retroactive to January 1, 2020. This increase is in line with the pay raise received by federal employees in other agencies.

In addition to the pay increase, the CBA includes provisions related to telework and alternative work schedules. These provisions are particularly important in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The CBA allows for expanded telework opportunities and provides more flexibility for employees to adjust their work schedules.

The CBA also includes provisions related to training and career development. The SSA and AFGE have agreed to work together to provide training opportunities and to establish career paths for employees. This is an important step toward promoting employee growth and development within the agency.

Finally, the CBA includes provisions related to employee rights and protections. The agreement outlines the procedures for addressing workplace disputes and includes protections against discrimination and retaliation.

Overall, the new AFGE-SSA Collective Bargaining Agreement is a significant achievement for both employees and management. It provides important benefits and protections for employees while also supporting the mission of the agency. As the SSA continues to evolve and adapt to new challenges, it is critical that its employees have the support and resources they need to succeed. This CBA is an important step in that direction.
