Since last we met, your Chapter 296 leaders have been very busy on your behalf.  We have learned a lot, we have represented your interests in several different settings, and we have a lot to report to you on a wide range of issues.  This is true every month.

NTEU National is holding a series of Town Hall telephone meetings to discuss pay, pension, and benefits currently at risk. At our meeting we will tell you more about these meetings and how you can participate.

We want to hear from you. What issues are you dealing with that the Union should know about? What would you like more information on? This is time for both 1) your questions and answers and 2) your comments and suggestions.

NPS is in the process of upgrading our computers in preparation to install Windows 10. We will discuss this and other issues related to computer network issues employees have been experiencing.

NTEU Chapter 296 will be holding an open house at our new location in MIB. More details to come on this event on Thursday.

The move from 1201 Eye Street to the Main Interior Building (MIB) is complete. We recently found out that many NPS employees will be affected by a move of DOI employees from the South Interior Building into MIB. We have met with NPS management to discuss how these employees will be affected. At our meeting we will discuss what we have found out.

Because this meeting is designed for WASO staff only, we will monitor the call-ins.
All WASO staff members are welcome! Please join us.  Bring a friend or listen in with one!  Enjoy lunch with your co-workers while you learn the latest news from Chapter 296.
