This proceeding arose under the standards of conduct provisions of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA), 5 U.S.C. 7120, and the implementing regulations, 29 CFR parts 457-459, as a result of a complaint filed by Loretta Ramsey, Treasurer of Local 3509 of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE). The Complainant alleged that her rights under 29 CFR 458.2 were violated when she was removed from certain union positions for exercising her membership right to vote in a union election.

The parties executed a Settlement Agreement dated December 14,2001, which requires the parties to take certain actions, including the reinstatement of the Complainant to two union positions. On January 25,2002, Administrative Law Judge Richard K. Malamphy issued his Recommended Decision and Order recommending that the Settlement Agreement be approved. No exceptions to the Recommended Decision and Order have been filed. Therefore, pursuant to 29 CFR 458.91, the Recommended Decision and Order is adopted and incorporated hereto without discussion.
