NTEU has produced a one-page summary of the EOs, what they mean to employees and what employees need to do.

NTEU has now distilled the summaries of each Executive Order (EO), what they mean for employees, what NTEU is doing, and what we need employees to do in response into one page. You may wish to hand this out to colleagues at lunch breaks, post in bulletin boards and your workspace, and/or distribute in some other fashion.

As a reminder, information on the lawsuit, detailed analyses of the EOs, and additional material are available in this website and upon request.

NTEU will provide other materials for use in the workplace in the near future.
