The IAM sent a letter urging members of the U.S. Senate to support the Protecting Collective Bargaining and Official Time for Federal Workers Act, S. 3583. This legislation revokes the three Executive Orders and one memorandum that have dangerously weakened laws designed to protect federal employees and their rights on the job.

“Federal workers are the backbone of the federal government and needed to accomplish federal operations, legislation and administrative duties,” said IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. “The Executive Orders and the presidential memorandum targeting these employees has only prevented and stifled workers from accomplishing their government missions and serving the public. We need these federal workers now more than ever, and what we do not need are obstacles like the Executive Orders or memorandums hindering the work for Americans.”
Here’s how you can take action now:
1) Call your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them to support the Protecting Collective Bargaining and Official Time for Federal Workers Act, S.3583.
