    Default A Court Blocked Trumpís Bid To Weaken Unions. The White House Found Another Way.

    President Donald Trump suffered a major legal setback last August in his effort to deconstruct the administrative state when a federal judge struck down key portions of three executive orders aimed at weakening federal unions and making it easier to fire government employees.

    But since then, the administration has been achieving the same goals through a different avenue ― the bargaining table. And theyíve done it with an assist from presidential appointees whose job is to referee labor disputes within the federal government.

    As federal agencies negotiate new union contracts with their workers, many have been pressing for the same types of management-friendly provisions Trump sought through the executive orders. Enabling this process has been the seven-member Federal Service Impasse Panel that, after Trumpís appointments, is now made up entirely of Republicans.

    When an agency and a union reach a stalemate, the dispute goes before the impasse panel. The result is a very challenging environment for unions. In one recent case involving the Department of Health and Human Services, a union representing 14,000 workers at the agency lost the majority of its arguments before the impasse panel, which rewrote significant portions of the contract in favor of management.

    Trump is not a friend of Unions.

    I beg to differ. We do have a choice to deny or ratify an agreement. We do have a choice as to who we elect as our officers. The article in the first post smacks of union busting. Plain and simple.

    Ok all you anti union trump supporters going on and on in the political forum about what a great president he is. Read this!!

    Unions plot next steps on Trump workforce executive orders
    This week’s decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals was immediately viewed as a win for the Trump administration in its effort to enforce the provisions of the President’s three workforce executive orders.

    A three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Tuesday overturned an August 2018 decision from a federal district court, which had initially invalidated nine key provisions of the President’s executive orders on collective bargaining and official time.

    But federal employee unions, which as a group sued the Trump administration over the workforce EOs last summer, have a legal path to challenge that decision.

    The appeals court hasn’t formally lifted the injunction on the President’s workforce executive orders, and agencies can’t immediately rush to implement the terms of the EOs, if they haven’t already.
    The ruling appears to give federal employee unions some time to challenge the decision from the three-judge panel, which the American Federation of Government Employees, National Treasury Employees Union and other plaintiffs on the case have said they will do.

    A Quiet Trump Administration Rule Change Could Allow a Federal Union-Busting Spree

    The Trump administration has proposed a change in rules governing union membership for federal government workers that could embolden federal agencies to discourage staff from joining or remaining in their union.

    The proposed rule, published in the Federal Register on Friday, would enable federal workers to drop union membership—and opt out of paying membership dues—at any point after their first year of membership. A rolling opt-out rule would mark a break from current practice, in which workers can revoke their membership at yearly intervals upon their anniversary of joining.

    Kate Bronfenbrenner, senior lecturer and director of labor education research at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, tells In These Times that beyond a mere administrative tweak allowing workers to opt out of membership whenever they please, the policy opens the door for employers to bully workers out of staying in their union, or joining in the first place. She said the issue of dues deduction could be a pressure point for employers to “intimidate and coerce workers” out of union activity.
