24 federal employee unions ask OSC to proactively investigate retaliation against labor relations employees who push back against implementing the Trump Executive Orders that violate the law.

United States of America Office of Special Counsel seal or logoYesterday NTEU, along with 23 federal employee unions, sent a letter to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) out of concern about potential retaliatory action against agency labor relations professionals who continue to engage in good faith bargaining as required under the Federal Service Labor-Relations Statute and ignore the new requirements in the Trump Executive Orders (EOs) that violate the law. The letter requests OSC to be proactive in investigating retaliation, as well as implied threats of retaliation, taken against agency labor relations employees who push back against carrying out these EOs and to remind federal employees that they can blow the whistle on violations of law, rule, or regulation by contacting the Inspector General or the Office of Special Counsel.

NTEU continues to fight these illegal EOs at every level. To find out more, and to see what you can do, click here and visit here.
