Background

The GLMRC is a forum for managers and the exclusive national labor Union representatives of GSA employees: the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) and the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE). In this forum, managers and the Unions discuss Government operations to promote satisfactory labor relations and improve the productivity and effectiveness of GSA. The GLMRC serves as a complement to the existing collective bargaining process and allows managers and the Unions to collaborate in continuing to deliver the highest quality services to the public. The Council discusses workplace challenges and problems and recommends solutions that foster a more productive and cost-effective service to the taxpayer, through improving job satisfaction and employees' working conditions.

Agenda

The purpose of the meeting is for the GLMRC to build its collaborative labor-management relationship, discuss the Council's activities and direction ahead for the year, and to consider Agency initiatives. The topics to be discussed include Council metrics, employee engagement activities, and human resource initiative updates.
