The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C) Promoting A Positive Change in the Federal Workplace Culture
 
View this email in your browser

The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C) is a volunteer group of present and former employees who seek an end to workplace abuse in the Federal government.  

On May 3, 2016, the C4C organizational leaders met with Mr. Carlton Hadden – the Director of the Office of Federal Operations, United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  The office provides oversight for the government-wide Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint adjudication, appellate and affirmative employment functions. 

The C4C met with the EEOC to address the pervasive problem of Federal workplace discrimination.  During the meeting, the C4C formally introduced its eight (8) accountability and transparency measures for transforming the Federal EEO process and thereby improving the retaliatory Federal workplace culture. 

 Many of the C4C solutions presented to the EEOC at the May 3rd meeting, were also presented earlier to Representative Elijah Cummings, Ranking Member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.  Representative Cummings introduced the C4C recommendations in bill HR 1557 - Federal Employee Anti-discrimination.  The HR 1557 bill was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Representatives and awaits further senate action.  
 
On June 23, 2016, the C4C had a follow-up meeting with the EEOC to obtain the EEOC’s position on adopting the C4C accountability and transparency measures.   Overall, the EEOC received the C4C recommendations favorably.  The EEOC conveyed that it had promptly adopted one of the C4C measures, with modification, that focused on referring cases for disciplinary actions to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC).    [The C4C made its recommendation after learning via a Freedom of Information Act inquiry that despite an established Memorandum of Understanding the EEOC had not been referring cases of proven discrimination to the OSC for disciplinary action.]. 
 
The EEOC also agreed with the C4C recommendation to eliminate  “gag orders” in EEO settlement agreements that deny complainants of their first amendment rights.   In a show of support, the EEOC shared with C4C leadership the Aurore C settlement breach case.  The case addresses unlawful and overly restrictive gag orders. 
 
The C4C plans a follow-up meeting with EEOC officials to further discuss the full list of measures  and EEOC’s implementation of, any or all, the measures to address the persistent problem of Federal workplace discrimination that woefully injures civil servants, harms American citizens, and threatens our nation’s domestic security.

 WASHINGTON – More than two years after President Obama signed a law compensating black farmers for decades of discrimination by federal agriculture officials, the farmers are still waiting for their money."It should not have taken this long,'' said Thomas Burrell, president of the Black Farmers and Agriculturists Association.
