National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations Meeting

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice of meeting.


SUMMARY: The National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations 
will hold its initial meeting on February 26, 2010, at the time and 
location shown below. The Council is an advisory body composed of 
representatives of Federal employee organizations, Federal management 
organizations and senior government officials. The Council was 
established by Executive Order 13522, entitled, ``Creating Labor-
Management Forums to Improve Delivery of Government Services,'' which 
was signed by the President on November 9, 2009. Along with its other 
responsibilities, the Council will assist in the implementation of 
Labor Management Forums throughout the government and will make 
recommendations to the President on innovative ways to improve delivery 
of services and products to the public while cutting costs and

employee interests. The Council is co-chaired by the Director of the 
Office of Personnel Management and the Deputy Director for Management 
of the Office of Management and Budget.
    Please note that we are providing a slightly shortened notice 
period for this meeting, as permitted under 41 CFR 102-3.150 in 
``exceptional circumstances.'' The record snowfall and resulting 
closure of Federal Government agencies in the National Capital Area in 
the previous 4\1/2\ days forced a postponement of the originally 
planned notice date. Deadlines imposed by the executive order are 
pending-agencies are required to submit draft implementation plans to 
OPM by March 9, and OPM believes that a timely first meeting is 
necessary to hear comments from the agencies and the public about the 
process to create Labor-Management Forums in each agency throughout the 
Federal Government. A further postponement of the meeting may hinder 
agencies' compliance with the March 9 deadline. Therefore, we believe 
that these conditions constitute ``exceptional circumstances'' within 
the meaning of the regulation, and that the shortened notice period is 
    At the February 26 meeting, the Council will discuss the functions 
and operating procedures of the Council and training opportunities for 
managers and employees' representatives. The meeting is open to the 
public. Please contact the Office of Personnel Management at the 
address shown below if you wish to present material to the Council at 
the meeting. The manner and time prescribed for presentations may be 
limited, depending upon the number of parties that express interest in 
presenting information.
