We will fight back against these executive orders and any unlawful treatment of all federal employees. We need you ready to act and engage as we respond to this egregious and outrageous attack against our work, our country, and our democracy.
The executive orders cover three main areas: Collective bargaining - how your union negotiates workplace protocols such as reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities, employee training, overtime, telework, and flexible work schedules; Removal procedure and merit principles - your rights to protection against unfair termination, suspension, and performance evaluation; Official time - the time your union reps use for legally mandated representation of employees in the workplace. Each of these executive orders strikes at the core of your representation and rights in the workplace and open you and your colleagues up for unjust termination and retaliation.
We will be in contact to update you on ways to get involved in fighting back against Trump’s attack on your rights and your job. For now, please go to www.afge.org/update to make sure we have the most up to date personal contact information.
