Support Bills Giving Federal Employees a Voice

NTEU is fighting on multiple fronts against the executive orders gutting federal employee rights.

In federal court, NTEU filed a lawsuit asking a judge to block implementation of the orders aimed at making it easier to fire federal employees and curbing employee representatives’ abilities to represent their co-workers and effectively bargain with agencies to improve workplaces. 

NTEU is also on Capitol Hill fighting for federal employees to keep a voice in their workplaces, and a seat at the table with management. The union is supporting legislation that would reinstate the labor-management forums that President Trump abolished last year.

The Federal Labor-Management Partnership Act (S. 2340 and H.R. 4878) would re-establish the Federal Labor Management Relations Council that NTEU was a member of, and require agency-level forums to have pre-decisional involvement in workplace issues.

These forums play a role in making each agency more efficient and effective by giving agency leadership the front-line perspective on agency operations. They enhance the labor-management relationship by keeping communications lines open and solving problems in the workplace at the lowest, most-cost effective level.

Federal workers need a voice in their workplaces, and a meaningful way to raise concerns to management and work collaboratively toward solutions.
