The National Treasury Employees Union is confronting the White House head-on, challenging the direction of the latest administration proposal that might hit federal employees—the proposed, and as-yet not sharply defined—government reorganization, announced recently by the Office of Management and Budget.
The plan will “require additional information and a thorough review by Congress,” NTEU said in a press release.
“Further details on the impact on the workforce and programs are needed before serious consideration can occur,” Tony Reardon, NTEU National President, said in a statement at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Reardon said his concerns also drew from an OMB memo, written last year. “Given the OMB memo, I am concerned that this proposal would unnecessarily move government work to the private sector when federal employees have proven, time and again, that they perform the work more efficiently and effectively if they have the tools and resources to do so,” he said.
