Collective bargaining agreement
The Congress finds that experience in both private and public employment indicates that the statutory protection of the right of employees to organize, bargain collectively, and participate through labor organizations of their own choosing in decisions which affect them, safeguards the public interest, contributes to the effective conduct of public business, and facilitates and encourages the amicable settlement of disputes between employees and Employers involving conditions of employment; and
The public interest demands the highest standards of employee performance and the continued development and implementation of modern and progressive work practices to facilitate and improve employee performance and the efficient accomplishment of the operations of the government; and
The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, hereinafter referred to as the "Employer" and the National Treasury Employees Union, Chapter 335 (and any other appropriate chapter in the same bargaining unit as designated by the Union in the future), hereinafter referred to as the "Union," do hereby make and enter into this agreement collectively; the Employer and the Union will be known as the "Parties."
The Parties enter into this Agreement with every intention to deal with each other in good faith and to be governed by honesty, reason and mutual respect.
