Following complaints of discrimination, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is giving some employees retroactive pay. And it’s overhauling the way it evaluates employees. To make an analogy, it’s dropping letter grades and going to pass-fail system . The National Treasury Employees Union negotiated the changes on behalf of agency employees. Union President Colleen Kelley joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss some of the complaints they were hearing from employees.
Tom Temin is the host of The Federal Drive, which airs from 6-8 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. region and online everywhere.
