Federal employee union representatives say that actions taken at agencies to restrict union activities while on the job have begun to cause chaos, Federal Times reports.
Federal agencies—including the Social Security Administration, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and others—began evicting unions out of their buildings as part of workforce orders implementation by the president, the article notes, adding that some employees don’t know how to contact their union representation anymore, and often have to coordinate overlapping break times to even discuss their cases with representation to ensure they are not on the clock.
Unions no longer have the information they need to adequately represent their clients, some have been told they could stay in the building if they pay rent, and it's also more difficult for representatives to bring issues of safety and security to management without being on the premises, the article notes.
