Our federal employees work under a constrained system of rules, regulations and executive orders that severely limit their scope of bargaining. Job security is, at best, tentative with outsourcing, downsizing and a convoluted maze of laws affecting how they must deal with hundreds of agencies for layoffs, promotions, and other personnel matters. The Government Employees Department is responsible for responding to the volumes of change that occur in the federal sector by working with the agencies through National Consultation Rights and seats on National Partnership Councils. It is our job to keep our federal employees, their elected leadership, and our full-time staff abreast of those changes and to provide representation and the requested services to ensure their economic well-being and quality of work life.
