Where is Mike Now? - AFGE Legislative Conference and CPL President's Training - Washington DC

Yours truly, giving a video statement to AFGE Communications on the impact that sequestration will have on the American public.
I'm in Washington DC this week for the 2013 AFGE Legislative Conference and the Council of Prison Locals President's Training.

In order to continue moving forward with policy negotiations with the BOP, we scheduled another Collaboration and Alternative Dispute Resolution Office meeting at FLRA headquarters yesterday.  The meeting was attended by CPL Policy Chairman and Mid-Atlantic Regional Vice President, Dwayne Person; Greg Shadowens from USP Marion; and me.  We successfully negotiated 2 more proposals on the Staff Search policy, and will be returning to FLRA headquarters today for more negotiations.  Our goal is to have a good policy that has minimal impact on staff, is easy to understand, and easy to follow.  We are also doing everything we can to write a policy that management will be unable to use to abuse their authority.

This week, I'll be meeting with Hawaii's folks from Congress and I'll be teaching some classes, too.
