The attached documents were submitted to the NNSA comments site

Doug/Brad--

The attached documents were submitted to the NNSA comments site on
Feb. 24 and 26, respectively, and are posted on the Coalition for
LANL Excellence website:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/COALITIONforLANLEXCELLENCE/.
I thought you might wish to post them as well.

Attachment 2, TCP-UC_Proposal.pdf

Comments:
Well considered, articulate, eminently reasonable. Will it receive the consideration it deserves? Please keep us posted.
 
I am trying to hope for the best in the response NNSA/DOE will have following the recent comment period. Bottom line right now is that no matter which option you choose, you loose.
 
My retirement planning has been centered around the lump-sum cashout. To lose the option for the lump sum requires that I transfer to TCP-2 to finish out my career.

There is abolutely no element of "substantially equivalent" in being forced to choke down TCP-2 in my retirement endeavors.

I hope that DOE/NNSA will lighten up on the Laboratory staff after all that has happened and make the proposed benefits package do right by those loyal workers.

I enjoy my job a great deal. I look forward to each new workday.

My only alternative otherwise is to prepare to dress in potato sacks, sit in the ashes of my campfire and wish for a blot on the houses of those that dreamed up this awful concoction.
 
"I enjoy my job a great deal. I look forward to each new workday."

You will get over this. LANS will help with this issue.
 
Re: The TCP-UC proposal, you have got to be kidding. Staff-aug's can be let go at any time, for any reason, and we already know that NNSA wants LANL to downsize. Folks are getting so hung up on their benefits, they're forgetting that receiving a paycheck is an important part of "substantially equivalent" employment. Count me out of the TCP-UC plan!
 
In re staff-augs.. when I checked with
my employer last week they been told but still nothing in writing that they would have a contract with LANS come June 1. So still waiting for a real answer.
TCP-1 vs TCP-2 isn't an issue for me, but not having my 8+ years of (non-UC) service at LANL count does.
