Trump has vowed to beat down Federal unions from day one….
“A federal judge set back the Trump administration’s efforts to limit collective bargaining for 2.1 million federal employees and severely restrict the on-duty time union officials can spend representing employees in grievances and other issues,” the Washington Postreports.
New York Times: “The ruling, issued early Saturday, is a blow to Republican efforts to rein in public-sector labor unions, which states like Wisconsin have aggressively curtailed in recent years. In June, the Supreme Court dealt public-sector unions a major blow by ending mandatory union fees for government workers nationwide. (Federal workers were already exempt from paying such fees.)”
