LAWMAKERS WANT TO RE-ESTABLISH LABOR-MANAGEMENT COUNCILS - January 29, 2018
Lawmakers Seek to Re-Establish Labor-Management Councils
By Erich Wagner, Government Executive
A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced legislation Thursday that would countermand President Trump’s order abolishing agency labor-management councils.
Last September, Trump issued an executive order disbanding the National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations and similar forums at agencies across the federal government. In December, the Office of Personnel Management issued a memo to implement the order, which suggested agencies renegotiate or cancel collective bargaining agreements that require such councils.
