Executive Order (EO) 13836, Developing Efficient, Effective, and Cost-Reducing Approaches to Federal Sector Collective Bargaining, signed by the President on May 25, 2018, requires agencies to submit any long-term collective agreement (CBA) and its expiry date within 30 days of the CBA`s entry into force. EO 13836 also requires OPM to make these CBAs available to the public on the internet. This promotes transparency by allowing the public to consult the types of agreements between federal agencies and industry unions. Agencies are also required to submit arbitration awards to OPM within 10 business days of receipt. OPM has issued a memorandum on the publication of the CBA database, which contains guidelines on agency requirements for CBAs and arbitration awards.

Upon approval, Agency users can submit arbitration and approval decisions directly through this application. CBAs must not contain signatures, names or other personal identifiers. Agencies can simply delete the CBA signature page or talk about individual signatures, names and other CBA personal identifiers. Please note that all CBAs must be submitted in a PDF format (portable document format) in accordance with section 508 of the Amended Rehabilitation Act 1973 (29 U.S.C 794 (d) and 36 CFR Part 1194). Arbitration awards do not require Section 508 of Compliance or Redaction, but must be in an indecipherable format.

John Philip Sousa, musician and composer, joined the apprentice marine at the age of 13 and served as head of the Marine Band from 1867 to 1872 and from 1880 to 1892.

During the Spanish-American War (1898), the Navies landed American troops in the Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico and showed their readiness. In Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Marines seized a sophisticated naval base that is still in service today. Between 1899 and 1916, the Corps continued its participation in foreign expeditions, including the Philippo-American War, the Boxing Uprising in China (1899-1901), Panama, the Cuban Pacific, the incident in Morocco, Veracruz, Santo Domingo and the banana wars in Haiti and Nicaragua; The experience gained during this period in counter-insurgency and guerrilla operations was summarized in the Small Wars Manual. [50] Marines have four main uniforms: Dress, Service, Utility and Physical Training (PT). These uniforms have minor but very different differences, from recruited personnel to mandated and subordinate officers. The Marine Corps uniform is the most elaborate, worn for formal or ceremonial occasions. There are four different forms of dress uniform. Variations in clothing uniforms are known as “Alphas,” “Bravos,” “Charlie” or “Deltas.” The most common are the “Blue Dress Alphas or Bravos”, called “Dress Blues” or simply “Blues”. It is most often seen in the recruitment of lenses and corresponds to the black tie. There is a “blue-white” dress for summer and evening dress for formal occasions (white tie). Versions with a khaki t-shirt in place of the coat (Blue Dress Charlie/Delta) are worn by marine recruits and NGOTC employees as a daily work uniform. [119] The rest of the 19th century was marked by a decrease in strength and introspection on the Mission of the Marine Corps.
