    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Va Emploees Union Contract 2011


Question

  • In Memoriam

I couldn't find the newer one. This will make a preson sick so if you don't have a stroger stomach don't go further.

Section 14 - Special Consideration
A. Employees who were downgraded without personal cause (i.e., where the
downgrade was not due to misconduct, inefficiency, or at the employee’s
own request), may be eligible for special consideration. Re-promotion
may be made to a grade previously held on a non-temporary basis or to an
intervening grade. This applies only when the employee was downgraded
in the Department and the re-promotion is to a grade formerly held in
the Department.
B. Employees under this provision will receive a special consideration for each
grade for which they were demoted or downgraded.

These senators are trying to comply with the unions and not the veterans.

not political:

http://www.govexec.com/oversight/2014/06/senate-has-deal-fix-va-whats-next/86023/

a bipartisan pair of senators has struck a deal to ease the firing of Veterans Affairs Department senior executives, provide significant funding for the hiring of new medical personnel and advance other agency reforms, but the proposal has yet to win universal praise.

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., reached the agreement after unveiling separate measures within the past week. The compromise legislation will include key provisions of both senators’ proposals:

McCain’s Republican-backed plan to give veterans 40 miles away from a VA facility access to private care on the government’s dime, and Sanders’ Democratic-backed initiative to create 26 new VA medical facilities and provide $500 million for hiring additional personnel

The House voted in October to cut bonuses for all VA employees by 14 percent for five years, in February to ban bonuses completely for agency senior executives for five years and in May to prohibit SES bonuses in 2015. The Senate Appropriations Committee also approved a measure last month to ban bonuses in 2015 for Veterans Health Administration medical directors, assistant medical directors and SES workers.

Great info, Stretch! :smile:

We need to drop the mileage requirement from McCain's proposal.

"Section 3 - Removal of Disciplinary Actions - Admonishments and reprimands may be removed from an employee’s files after a six month period. If an employee requests removal of such actions after six months, they should be removed if the purpose of the discipline has been served. In all cases, an admonishment should be removed from an employee’s file after two years and a reprimand will be removed after three years..."

'My record is spotless' :biggrin:

... plan to give veterans 40 miles away from a VA facility access to private care

Pathetic... 20 or 25 miles distance away from many VAMCs , would show real commitment in helping disabled vets. Disabled vets living outside of metropolitan areas would still have 40 miles of heavy traffic to go through just to spend 20 min. looking for a place to park. Then 40 miles of rush hour traffic back home, after spending hours at one of those training hospitals.
This clause in the bill gives us insight into the mentality of those in Congress, who claim they want to rebuild the VA system.
I want to see more from these changes they are trying to beguile us with.
JMHO,
C.B.

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
