Office of Labor-Management Relations (LMR)


About LMR

LMR facilitates a collaborative working environment by promoting labor-management cooperation and working with labor organizations to improve the delivery of service to Veterans and their families. LMR provides guidance and advice to Department managers and specialists seeking clarification of laws, government-wide regulations, case law and VA policy. In addition, LMR develops and facilitates labor relations training, negotiates national collective bargaining agreements, responds to national grievances, and appraises the effectiveness of VA labor-management relations programs throughout the Agency.

New 38 USC 7422 Workshop Series

Partnership and collaboration are alive and well in the VA. Between July and September 2012, we will present a series of workshops in every Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) covering the application of the provisions of 38 USC 7422 and Secretary's 7422 Decision Document. The training was developed collaboratively by labor leaders and VA management and the collaboration continues with both partners presenting to the audience comprised of both labor and management. Site specific information and dates will be posted on the website.
