    Default “The future of our planet is at stake,” Union Says as White House Guts EPA Worker Con

    WASHINGTON – The Trump administration is undermining federal efforts to protect our environment by discarding the contract between the Environmental Protection Agency and its employee union and replacing it with an illegal edict, the American Federation of Government Employees said today.

    “The 8,000 employees we represent at EPA are professional civil servants who have dedicated their lives to science and protecting the environment. By trampling on their rights, this administration is showing a blatant disregard not only for these workers but for the very mission of the EPA,” AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.

    On July 8, EPA management made the unlawful decision to replace the previously negotiated collective bargaining agreement between the agency and AFGE Council 238 with a management edict that demonstrates outright hostility to union rights, federal employees, and the mission of the EPA. The illegal edict:

    Allows management to unilaterally exclude employees from telework, disrupting their lives and schedules;
    Prevents AFGE from providing fair representation to employees by slashing the amount of time union representatives can spend representing employees by 75%;
    Limits employees’ access to their union representatives by evicting union representatives from the office space currently provided by the agency;
    Eliminates many memorandums of understanding and supplemental agreements used to enforce employment laws and policies at the worksite; and
    Imposes the contract terms for seven years.

    I don't have a lot of feelings on federal level union employees.
    Certainly can not comment on the effects of what the article insinuates. Not enough info.
    I do know they are being used as a battering ram for some environmental agenda.
    As for political parties for the workers I will say Trump has done more for workers then Obama or Hillary ever would have.
    Show me a truck driver who isn't doing well right now. More jobs then ever.
    Even if some dem said all jobs to be union what good would it be in a dead economy.

    I respond to you one more time with the directive to follow the rules.
    You complained about the name calling, yet you seem to feel your above that, or what you say isn't insulting.
    Go back and read what you just said.

    Final warning.

    First time I have ever read a coherent post that actually point out what you feel is a problem.
    I'll answer with a couple of thoughts.

    I also don't know enough about the labor issue concerning the federal EPA employees. But if the union reps feel it's unfair, then I will side with them

    I will also say Obama could have done more. To say Trump has done more ... lacks any physical proof.

    As for more jobs then ever. Yes, burger flipping jobs. Maybe you need to read more news that is posted telling of the multitude of trucking companies that closed abruptly and stiffed their drivers. The fact that ABF is in slow down mode and that some men aren't even getting a full week.

    That dead economy you speak of is coming ... soon.

    This is only one particular branch the article speaks of. There have been other posts in regards to violating the negotiated agreement.

    So the word "comrade " is somehow insulting or name calling ???
    Post #2 "Disciples"---you

    Homelessness Post#26,"3 Amigo's"---you

    Both of these phrases could be construed as insulting also, or are you immune to rules that others are supposed to adhere to.

    Shall I list a few of your responses ?
    "Same sh-t from you just a different shovel."
    "lib cohorts"
    "Mexifornia"
    "this is what all you libs want"
    "Lilly white libs"
    "The broken record is liberal whine"
    "some azz kissing,left wing, labor related"
    "your socialist,communist group share"

    The list goes on.

    Follow the rules ... period. Don't stray from the thread subject matter. Don't insult others. Don't continue with the rhetorical and redundant posts. Provide links.

    Final warning.
