Last month, federal workers won a lawsuit against the administration’s union-busting, democracy-busting executive orders. Now, they’re appealing that ruling.
A federal judge ruled that President Trump violated the U.S. Constitution and laws providing checks and balances in the federal government by attempting to deny us our legal right to representation.
But that’s not stopping the administration and management from trying to take away our rights by putting these heinous executive orders back in full effect.
Our union filed two lawsuits challenging President Trump’s May 25 executive orders days after they were issued.
On July 25, the day of oral arguments in that case, tens of thousands of federal workers across the nation wore red to work and attended one of more than 65 rallies, making a huge impression in the news and on social media.
We won that initial case, but the administration is now appealing. We have to fight back and show them that federal workers stand united. We’re ALL in!
It is up to us to keep working for our rights at work and our very democracy - and to do that, federal government workers have to be all in.
We have to show our solidarity by wearing Red for Feds every Wednesday, and increase awareness of what we’re fighting back against by sharing pictures of our red on social media with the hashtag #RedForFeds
When management and the administration see worksites full of government workers wearing red, they will once again see how much power we have when we’re all in, together.
