SEC Reaches Union Deal That Includes 5-Day Telecommute Benefit

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has agreed on a new contract with its union that will allow some employees to telecommute as many as five days a week and expands child-care subsidies.

The agreement with the SEC’s chapter of the National Treasury Employees Union also will permit new flexible work schedules that allow employees to vary their hours and includes new rules for furloughs caused by federal budget cuts. A collective-bargaining agreement covers non-management employees, according to the union’s website.
