The Federal Labor Relations Authority on Wednesday formally proposed a rule AFGE President Everett Kelley called “just another in a series of activist steps the FLRA has taken to advance this administration’s goal of busting unions and making it even harder for rank-and-file federal employees to speak up, defend their rights, and serve the American people." Kelley said the proposed rule -- which would make it easier for federal employees to cancel their union dues -- is contrary to both settled law and Congressional intent. “That they would push forward with this kind of union busting in the midst of a pandemic, while front-line federal employees like VA caregivers, airport screeners, food inspectors, and other personnel are being forced to fight the administration for basic safety protocols and personal protective equipment, is truly disgraceful.”
