If an employee is facing disciplinary proceedings, they must be given a reasonable opportunity to make representations. The opportunity to make representations can be provided by the employer, or by the AFSA, if the proceedings are against the employee.
Employees facing disciplinary proceedings must be given a reasonable opportunity to make representations.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is an excellent source of information on workplace matters. The board’s mission is to ensure the free and fair operation of labor negotiations and that employees have access to information that will assist them in making informed decisions. This includes information about union organizations, collective bargaining agreements, and other aspects of Federal employment. The NLRB is also responsible for defining the rules of the Federal Labor Relations Act (FLRA), which consists of numerous directives and regulations governing Federal personnel and their conduct. Its primary role is to protect the interests of Federal employees and those of their respective employers. For instance, the NLRB’s website provides links to various forms of federal employment, including positions requiring security clearances. In addition, the board’s blog and online resources offer an array of advice and tips on how to be a Federal employee. Among other things, the board’s website has an employee assistance program (OAP) to help employees navigate disciplinary procedures, find and retain appropriate counseling and retraining, and prevent employee exploitation. The office also offers resources for federal employees looking to start a family, as well as information on how to cope with a divorce, separation, or breakup.
Another noteworthy resource is the Federal government’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which is the repository of all federal employee records. OPM maintains an exhaustive database of federal employees, as well as an internal database of disciplinary incidents. Although the official OPM website is not available to the public, you can check out the site’s online employee resources. Likewise, the OPM’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can provide counsel on how to resolve personal issues, such as divorce, separation, child custody, and alimony. There is also the OPM’s Health and Welfare Benefits Program, which offers medical and dental benefits for eligible employees.
Making representations to the AFSA
For more than forty years, the Air Force Sergeants Association (AFSA) has been a stalwart advocate for the interests of enlisted members in the U.S. military. As the official representative of the enlisted workforce, the association provides representation to Congress and other federal officials. It also conducts investigations into allegations of misleading and deceptive conduct. The organization has seven divisions and 125 chapters across the United States and the world. AFSA is classified as a Veteran Service Organization and is endorsed by the U.S. Congress.
The AFSA headquarters is located in Suitland, Md., and a website is independently operated by the organization. The organization’s Executive Council is composed of fourteen members. In addition to the International President, there are seven division presidents and one non-voting member, the AFSA Executive Director. These officers all report to the AFSA board, which consists of officers elected by the regular membership.
AFSA is a steward of the military benefits and welfare of enlisted personnel. It is also a federally chartered Veterans Service Organization. To qualify as a member, a person must be working in food sovereignty in Africa, have paid a subscription fee, and agree to abide by the organization’s principles. AFSA has three membership categories: Regular Membership, Associate Membership, and Friends of AFSA. Associates may be employed in the Foreign Service, NGOs, or business partners. A prospective member must submit an application, pay the annual subscription fee, and provide a letter of intent. The board will consider a member’s qualifications on a case-by-case basis.
Members of AFSA make a variety of contributions to the organization’s operations. They provide expertise, receive publications, and contribute to learning exchange among regions. There is also a governing Board of Directors and an Executive Committee. AFSA members can be part of the association’s advisory council, which provides advice to the AFSA president on issues of interest.
AFSA has a Secretariat, comprised of persons appointed by the AFSA. This group is responsible for providing administrative services to the Foundation, including appointing arbitrators, charging fees for venue, and conducting administrative functions. AFSA may also collect name and other contact information online. However, AFSAEF will not knowingly disclose personally-identifying information to third parties. If a person believes that the AFSAEF has provided personally identifying information to a third party, they can notify the AFSA.
The Governing Board shall consist of regular members in good standing, who are elected to represent the organization’s constituencies. Each year, the board reelects members to serve two-year terms. During the term of office, the board will hold an orientation session, which will explain the individual fiduciary responsibilities of the board members. Before taking office, each new member must sign a Code of Conduct.
The President and Vice President serve as executive officers and advise the president on policies and personnel matters. The Executive Committee will discuss issues and proposed changes to standard operating procedures, staff matters, and other issues impacting the AFSA members. These decisions are then reported to the next session of the Governing Board for action.
Making representations to the employer

Fortunately, the union is in fact a union. This means you’ll find your fair share of neophytes tucking into the good ole’ fashion office humphrey in an effort to impress their bosses. The plight of the slackers is not the worst a given, but a retooled bourn is no small matter. You’ll also have to navigate the minefield that is HR and its ilk.

If you’re a unionist with a sense of style, you’ll be well served by making it a point to attend at least one annual meeting in the coming year. In the process, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with your peers in a non-intimidating setting and the likes.
