The standards of conduct provisions of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA), among other statutes, guarantee certain rights to Federal employees who exercise their statutory right to become a member of a union representing Federal employees. The provisions also impose certain responsibilities on officers of these unions to ensure union democracy, financial integrity, and transparency. The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) is the Federal agency with primary authority to enforce many standards of conduct provisions. If you need additional information, please contact OLMS at 1-866-4-USA-DOL FREE. If you suspect a violation of these rights or responsibilities, you should refer to your union’s constitution and bylaws for information on union procedures, timeliness, and remedies. Complaints may be filed with OLMS after exhaustion of reasonable internal union remedies. See 29 C.F.R. §§ 452.135, 458.54.

Celebrating July 4, 2016
Updated On: Jul 02, 2016
Celebrating July 4th in and around the LA/LB Seaport
The holiday establishing a point in time in which a group of people stood up to those that had dominion over them is perhaps the most important holiday celebrated by Americans. July 4, 1776 was a moment in time where those under the rule of others said, “We have had enough.” Although the promise of freedom and independence was not delivered immediately to all of the residents of the American Colonies, it is important that freedom to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is the hallmark of every American struggle.
We at NTEU Chapter 103 encourage each and every one of you to take time out of your busy lives to celebrate July 4, 2016. In an effort to help you in that endeavor, please review the below list of activities taking place in and around the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport.
Bring your picnic baskets, chairs and blankets and enjoy patriotic, boogie-woogie and rockabilly tunes from atop the highest accessible peak in Long Beach. Also get a sneak peek of the four-acre hilltop park at California Gardens—also known as the Willow Gulch—which provides breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. FREE. Starts at 7PM, 2745 Orange Ave.
4. Aquarium of the Pacific July 4th BBQ
Enjoy the fishes at night (the red, white and blue ones, of course) at this Independence Day-themed event. Grab your fresh grilled food outside, then head inside for a fish-eye view of the City of Long Beach fireworks display. $37 per adult (12+) and $29 per child. 6PM-10PM, 100 Aquarium Way. www.aquariumofpacific.org
3. Bluff Heights Block Party
This all-day block party takes over Vista Street starting at 12:30PM and is chock full of games, contests and America-themed favorites such as the Patriotic Pooch Parade and the Bike Rodeo. If you live in the neighborhood, then your name might already be on the potluck list (which assigns main course, salads or beverage items to families based on last name). If not, stop by and toss water balloons, nail whoever’s in the dunk tank and walk down to the bluff to check out the fireworks when it’s all over. FREE. 12:30PM-6PM, Vista St. between Obisbo and Orizaba. www.bluffheights.org
2. Sky Room's 4th of July Celebration
View fireworks as they go off across Los Angeles and Orange Counties with city and Oceanside vantage points in the historic Sky Room atop the Breakers building. Dinner will be served in the restaurant starting at 5:30PM and the rooftop bar opens at 6PM. Happy hour goes all night, too, so why not celebrate Independence Day in style? Opens at 5:30PM, call for reservations, 40 Locust Ave. www.theskyroom.com
1. 4th of July along Queensway
