Petition to Alex Azar, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services
Tell Secretary Azar That You Deserve Respect
We, the frontline employees of the Department of Health and Human Services, chose public service because we want to contribute to the betterment of this country. We work hard each day to achieve HHS’ mission. We are dismayed that our work is being rewarded with your negotiators’ proposals to eliminate our rights to alternative work schedules, telework, a fair performance awards process, transit subsidies, a fair and transparent merit promotion process, and many more. If you care about employee morale, and if you care about recruiting and retaining a dedicated workforce, we ask that you direct your negotiating team to rescind these proposals. We ask that you further instruct them to work with NTEU to further expand workplace programs that will make HHS a model employer among federal agencies and one where all employees are treated fairly, with dignity and with respect.
