Branch 376 ‘Information Shareables’
John Aceves, former NAPS secretary/treasurer and Rocky Mountain Area vice president—currently the Southern Arizona Branch 376 support assistant—has started an email stream on various topics, titled “Information Shareables.” Recent shareables include information on the ELM 650. For example:
It is unfortunate some managers in leadership positions quickly revert to disciplining EAS employees, completely ignoring and bypassing ELM Section 651.3, which directs managers to coach, mentor and assist EAS employees.
If this is happening to you and you are being quickly disciplined, notify your local NAPS officers. This not only could be construed as heavy-handed disciplining, but possibly could be a violation of your EEOC rights.
651.3 Nondisciplinary Corrective Measures
“Accountable managers/supervisors are responsible for the day-to-day performance management of subordinates. The accountable manager/supervisor monitors subordinates’ performance and provides appropriate resources, coaching and feedback to subordinates. The manager/supervisor is responsible for leading the employee to a higher level of achievement. Performance improvement should be a shared concern and effort between manager and employee. Early dialogue and guidance are critical to achieving positive results and continuance of an effective manager/employee relationship.”
We appreciate and thank those managers in leadership positions who take the initiative and this responsibility seriously to enhance their EAS cadres’ ability to succeed. This is leadership!
Aceves highlights an issue, then explains the process and cites the appropriate section in the ELM. Other topics will be covered in future emails. Aceves explained the information offered is the sole view and opinion of the author.
