Last week, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee met to consider several anti-employee and anti-union bills. The proposed bills will eliminate collective bargaining on Information Technology decisions, will upend the role of the Merit Systems Protection Board in its work to oversee employee appeals, and will hinder effective performance management at federal agencies by both eliminating agency dispute resolution processes and the due process rights, which are the legal procedures that must be followed to prevent harmful or unequal treatment, of federal employees. The Senate introduced bills similar bills.
NTEU strongly opposes all of these measures and will work to block these anti-labor laws from being enacted. For more information, read the letter NTEU sent to the Committee members expressing our concerns.
