Mayor Bowser is committed to attracting and retaining the highest caliber work force for the District of Columbia and having that work force operate efficiently and effectively in agencies that treat all workers fairly and with dignity. This Cabinet-level position is located in the Office of Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining (OLRCB), which has responsibility for the administration of a comprehensive city-wide labor relations program for all agencies under the administrative authority of the Mayor. ·This responsibility includes representing the Mayor and District agencies under the direct personnel authority of the Mayor in collective bargaining over compensation and working conditions; representing District management before the Public Employee Relations Board in representations, unit determinations and unfair labor practice cases, negotiability and arbitration appeals, and impasse proceedings; and, developing and presenting cases before third party neutrals in grievance and interest arbitration proceedings. The OLRCB works closely with independent agencies (e.g., DC Public Library, the University of the District of Columbia and the Not-for-Profit Hospital Corporation) on labor matters. The program also involves policy development, investigation and resolution of complaints, contract administration, and labor law and labor relations research. A large percentage of the District of Columbia's workforce (approximately 36,000 strong) is represented by labor organizations. Approximately two-thirds of the organized employees are under the direct authority of the Mayor while the remaining third are under the independent agencies. Employees are represented by over a dozen different employee organizations in numerous bargaining units.

There is a legal requirement that each new appointee to the Excepted and Executive Service either: (1) be domiciled in the District of Columbia at the time of appointment; or (2) establish District domicile within one hundred eighty (180) days of appointment. The law also requires that Excepted and Executive Service employees maintain District domicile during the period of the appointment. Failure to maintain District domicile during the period of the appointment will result in forfeiture of employment.
