  1. It seems unusual to me as well. I have placed a few inquiries trying to gain more insight. I have this feeling I am not getting the whole story, as is usually the case.
  2. Let me preface my response by saying the mention of Union's can sometimes scare people, thereby, creating knee jerk reactions to fairly innocuous situations. The Union Rep on site is only a small piece of the issue, because of potential future problems that may exist as a result. However, I can deal with those problems if they occur, they are merely potential future problems and only hypothetical right now. My first, and immediate, concern is the individual from facility not staying in his lane, for lack of a better cliché. My initial post may be lacking information, as I am still trying to determine what actually happened. So right now, I am simply trying to ascertain if the person in question did something inappropriate, illegal, or in violation of the FAR that requires me, as the person administering this contract, to respond. Aside from calming down the COR and the Contractor, and outside of any action dictated by Facility Policy, which I have not researched yet; what other actions should I contemplate? Any guidance or advice would be wonderful.
  3. No, I did not, I found out about the visit after the fact.
  4. A little advice: Has anyone ever encountered a VA Employee contacting an outside union, like the Pipefitters Union and asking them to visit a construction site of a Construction Contract you are currently administering. Is there any regulation from preventing a VA Employee, with no stake in the project, from contacting Union Reps outside of the VA? Is there any case law stating the legality of such an action? On the surface, to me, this seems highly irregular but I want to find out if anyone else has dealt with such an issue. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated, if you have or need any other questions answered to get a full and detailed picture please let me know. I will do my best to answer them.
