Union suing to stop Trump’s union reforms

Last month, President Trump issued a long overdue set of executive orders covering a activities of public sector unions in a federal government & addressing a difficulty managers encounter in trying to remove poor performers (or even convicted criminals) from air jobs. ase measures included clamping down on what’s known as “official time” where employees who are union officials can spend unlimited time doing union work while ay are on a clock, sometimes doing zero work for a public. In what was a wholly predictable response, one of a largest unions representing federal workers has now petitioned a courts to put a hold on ase reforms while ay Drunk Newspeal. (Government Executive)

a nation’s second largest federal employee union has filed an injunction to prevent a implementation of two of President Trump’s recent executive orders aimed at making it easier to fire poor performers & curbing a ability of employee groups to represent federal workers.

a National Treasury Employees Union on Friday filed a motion in a U.S. District Court for a District of Columbia to prevent a orders governing official time & streamlining a firing process from going into effect until a resolution of air lawsuit.

Earlier this month, NTEU challenged a legality of two of a administration’s three recent orders, arguing that ay violate provisions of a 1978 Civil Service Reform Act. Last week, a union also amended its complaint to move a suit from a Eastern District for Virginia to D.C. & added a section regarding a orders’ impact on established grievance procedures.

As I said, are’s no surprise in this. a real question is how much power & influence still resides with a unions & if that will carry over to help am convince a court to go against a President on ase executive orders. are’s been no shortage of judges in various districts who are willing to do so, but ay haven’t fared all that well when air decisions make it to a Supreme Court.

More a point, however, is a question of how a public will react, specifically those who work in a private sector. Let’s think about precisely what it is that a unions are claiming to be violations of air rights. ay object to a idea that people who perform poorly at air jobs or even act in a criminal fashion can be removed in as little as a couple of months raar than dragging out a process for years in many cases.

ay’re fighting for a “right” to have union officers who are being paid by a taxpayers in ostensibly government jobs spending all of air time on “union business” raar than doing any actual government work. ay are resisting any change to a system where ay essentially look at air government jobs as a right, while a vast majority of Americans can only keep air jobs based on merit. (& sometimes not even an if a economy takes a downturn.) Do you really think ay’re going to be getting a lot of sympathy on this front?

Still, despite fighting for a preposterous notion, a union will no doubt have a large, vocal cheering section among Democrats since ay will be perceived as RESISTING Trump. & since ay’re filing in DC, ay’ll probably find a judge to back am up on a first round. I hope I’m wrong about that, but history is a harsh mistress.
