[City] Federal Workers’ Union to Protest White House Assault on Employees’ Collective Bargaining Rights
AFGE members to rally in support of federal workers
What: The American Federation of Government Employees is organizing a protest against the Trump administration’s efforts to undermine federal employee unions and prevent workers from blowing the whistle on mismanagement and other workplace abuses. The administration is looking to fast-track implementation of three anti-worker executive orders that would prevent the union from representing employees at the worksite, filing employee grievances against wrongful terminations and other adverse actions, and bargaining over a range of issues that benefit workers and the public.
