Following the President’s issuance of the three Executive Orders (EOs) on May 25, NTEU has been working to educate Capitol Hill on the harm these actions will have on federal employees, as well as on federal employee labor organizations and day-to-day representational duties. Today, 45 Senate Democrats sent a letter asking the President to rescind the EOs and to direct agency and department heads to cease and desist from abrogating existing collective bargaining agreements.
I appreciate the strong support of these Senators on behalf of frontline federal employees and our existing workplace rights. We will continue to urge members of Congress to oppose the EOs, and to instead demonstrate support for federal workers by cosponsoring NTEU-supported legislation to get labor representatives back at the table collaborating constructively with agencies (S. 2340 and H.R. 4878), and to oppose administration proposals to freeze pay and slash retirement benefits.
