Improper Computer Usage

SEC employees are reminded by the agency from time to time that misuse or inappropriate use of government computers may be subject to disciplinary action, including suspension or termination.

NTEU wants you to know that this is a very serious issue at the agency. Employees who have utilized their agency computers to access inappropriate websites, such as those containing pornography, have been the subject of investigation and termination. The agency is capable of tracking the sites that SEC employees visit. Please protect your job and your professional reputation by avoiding these types of sites.

Reminder – Performance Management System Volunteers Are Needed

NTEU Chapter 293 needs union members who are willing to participate in the development of performance management and appraisal parameters for their positions. If you are interested in working on this important project, please contact Chapter 293 President Greg Gilman.
