In May 2018, President Donald Trump issued three Executive Orders (EOs) aimed at degrading the rights of federal sector employees. At NFFE-IAM, we understand that the existence of unions in the federal sector is to promote the efficiency of the civil service, regardless of the malicious and erroneous falsehoods stated by those who look to demoralize and belittle the great work that federal employees undertake everyday.

NFFE-IAM has worked diligently alongside our labor partners to beat back this attack on the American worker since the beginning, and will continue to do so at every turn. Below you will find a timeline of events, links to articles and downloadable content that can be used in your Local's efforts to counter agency implementation of these anti-employee EOs. Sign up for NFFE E-News and check back here periodically for updates.
