Stand in Solidarity with Federal Government Unions!

While President Joe Biden’s appointments to the NLRB and the DOL work to promote pro-labor policies, federal workers are still dealing with Trump’s anti-worker appointees. The Federal Labor Relations Authority and Merit Systems Protection Board, federal agencies tasked with protecting the rights of federal workers, continue to carry on the former president's assault on workers’ rights.

One such attack involves the National Association of Immigration Judges, part of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE). The Trump appointees voted to take away the Immigration Judges’ bargaining rights – a right they’ve had since the '70s and under six presidents. Despite opposition from the Department of Justice, Biden Administration, and an appellate court decision, the FLRA continues to deny the union members their rights.

Action is needed NOW on President Biden’s nominees to the Federal agencies, which are stuck in the Senate. Take action by telling the Senate to confirm the President’s nominees.
