4/16/14: Last week, the union awarded FWRO stewards Janie Frank and Jody Moore the Excellence in Representation Award. They were honored for their successful representation of several employees, including one management was seeking to terminate on purported "AWOL" grounds.
The awards ceremony took place during the National Treasury Employees Union's National Steward Training Conference. Dozens of SEC stewards, along with stewards from many other federal agencies, attended the conference, where they received training on a wide range of issues, including the new CBA, compensation matters, performance management, representation of employees, litigation updates, etc.
"To receive this award is an honor and the employees in the FWRO should be very proud to have among them such talented individuals who have volunteered countless hours to make a positive contribution to their fellow employees," Chapter 293 President Greg Gilman said this morning. "I know that I am very proud of my association and work with both Janie and Jody. And it is important for you to know that they have your back. They are extremely compassionate and courageous representatives who deserve to be recognized for their tireless efforts on your behalf."
