Wallops Employees Seek to Decertify Union

Federal Labor Relations Authority Invites Customer Input on Representation Issue

"The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) is inviting customer input on a significant representation issue arising in a case currently pending before the Authority: National Aeronautics & Space Administration, Goddard Space Flight Center, Wallops Island, Virginia, Case No. WA-RP-13-0052, 67 FLRA 258 (2014) (Member DuBester concurring). The Authority order granting review in pertinent part can be found here. This case raises a legal question of first impression concerning whether S 7111(f)(3) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and S 2422.12(d) of the Authority's Regulations apply to decertification petitions filed by individuals."

Keith's note: NASA civil servants working at Wallops Flight Facility have been seeking to decertify the existing union there since June 2013. They claim that union representation is no longer necessary at that location. The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) has not yet decided if they will conduct a special secret ballot election among those civil servants to decertify the current union at Wallops (American Federation of Government Employees - AFGE).
