References provide instruction on procedures to be used when negotiating labor agreements.

This office has become aware of one negotiated labor agreement that did not go through the required review process outlined in the referenced material above. In addition, there are at least two new agreements that have been implemented that do not speak to Business Based Actions (BBA) but still have the old Reduction-In-Force (RIF) language in them.

The Department of Defense Field Advisory Service (DFAS) reviews these agreements for adherence to law. NAF unique policy and regulatory issues are not reviewed. This review must be done at the local and MACOM levels. In the future a courtesy copy of proposed agreements will be sent to this office at the same time the official package is sent to DFAS. Installations and MACOMs must assure that NAF unique issues are dealt with and made part of the agreements and not expect DFAS review to deal with the issues i.e. BBA Vs RIF.

Any questions pertaining to this subject that cannot be answered locally or at the MACOM level should be addressed to the HQDA, ASA (M&RA), CPP/NAF DIV., (SFCP-NF), 200 STOVALL STREET, SUITE 1N39, ALEXANDRIA, VA 22332-0300, Attn: Russ Coburn, DSN: 221-7763/FAX-DSN 221-2881 (COMMERCIAL (703) 325-7763/FAX 325-2881, E-mail: russ.coburn@(email address expired)
