AFGE Statement on FLRA Union-Busting Proposed Rule

Proposed rule just the latest move to bust unions and silence workers, union says

WASHINGTON – American Federation of Government Employees National President Everett Kelley issued the following statement in response to a proposed rule from the Federal Labor Relations Authority published today in the Federal Register

“The decision to move forward with this proposed rule is just another in a series of activist steps the FLRA has taken to advance this administration’s goal of busting unions and making it even harder for rank-and-file federal employees to speak up, defend their rights, and serve the American people.

“The Authority’s proposed rule is contrary to both settled law and Congressional intent that clearly establish that dues allotments are only revocable at yearly intervals.

“That they would push forward with this kind of union busting in the midst of a pandemic, while front-line federal employees like VA caregivers, airport screeners, food inspectors, and other personnel are being forced to fight the administration for basic safety protocols and personal protective equipment, is truly disgraceful.”
