ALEXANDRIA, Va.-NCUA employees voted 345-220 in favor of organizing a union. The Federal Labor Relations Authority conducted the nationwide vote, which had been going on for the last 30 days and culminated in a final in-person vote at the agency’s headquarters June 30. The FLRA’s San Francisco office reported the vote count. National Treasury Employees Union already represents about 150,000 employees at 30 different government agencies, including the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, the OCC bargaining unit has begun the process to decertify. NCUA’s bargaining unit will add a potential 800 more employees. NTEU President Colleen M. Kelley praised employees’ perseverance despite the fact NCUA challenged the eligibility for about 500 employees. The FLRA determined the employees, mostly examiners, to be eligible. “We were confident that once NCUA employees had the opportunity to express themselves in a vote, they would choose to join with so many others in the federal financial regulatory community” in being represented by NTEU, Kelley said. “We greatly appreciate all employees who took the time to consider this important issue and vote. NCUA’s employees are its most valuable asset and we look forward to a continuation of the excellent working relationship we have had in our joint commitment of fulfilling our statutory mission,” said NCUA Executive Director J. Leonard Skiles.
