Senate Committee Ranking Members Respond to Trump Executive Orders by Standing with Federal Employees

Three Senate Committee Ranking Members respond to the May 25th Trump Executive Orders by asking the White House to rescind them.

Thumb upFollowing the President’s issuance of the three Executive Orders (EOs) on May 25th, 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 your day-to-day representational duties. Earlier this week, 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. Now three additional Senators, Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Ranking Members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC), Veterans’ Affairs Committee, and HSGAC Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management, respectively, sent their own letter requesting the same of the White House.

NTEU appreciates the strong support of these senators, whose committees have jurisdiction over significant numbers of federal workers and the current laws providing collective bargaining rights in the federal sector, on behalf of frontline federal employees and their existing workplace rights.
