The UNION proposed the following:

Any questions that the employees may have will be answered by the Personnel in the VISN office or by the local facility Personnel representative, depending on the expertise at both sites.

The AGENCY proposed the following:

In accordance with the provisions of the Master Agreement and upon request, a bargaining unit employee may review his/her Official Personnel Folder (OPF) at the local VA facility during regular hours of operation. Upon receipt of a request from the employee, the Employer will retrieve the OPF within a reasonable period of time for review by the requesting employee.

The PANEL ordered the parties to adopt the following:

Employee access to OPFs will be governed by the terms of Article 33, § 4 of the NFFE Master Agreement. In addition, the Employer will expedite requests for access to OPFs where an employee shows good cause.
