Update on Legislation Introduced to Take Away Employee Rights


Recently, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee met to consider several anti-employee and anti-union bills.

The proposed bills would eliminate collective bargaining on Information Technology decisions, upend the role of the Merit Systems Protection Board in its work to oversee employee appeals, and hinder effective performance management at federal agencies by both eliminating agency dispute resolution processes and the employee due process rights.  Due process rights are the legal procedures that must be followed to prevent harmful or unequal treatment. 

Several committee members spoke against the legislation and defended the existing role of federal employee labor organization.    

NTEU strongly opposes all of these measures and will work to block these anti-employee bills from being enacted. Tell your Senator or Representative how you feel about these attacks directly by visiting NTEU's Legislative Action Center (on your personal time).
