Federal Judge Strikes Down Most of Trump's Executive Orders Targeting Federal Employee Unions

In an important victory for our sisters and brothers in the federal workforce, late on Friday, August 25, 2018, a federal district court invalidated many of the key elements of President Trump’s Executive Orders that tried unilaterally to destroy hard fought, negotiated rights and benefits.  The court found that the President is not above the law, and therefore cannot simply announce and implement his anti-worker Executive Orders.  Among the provisions invalidated by the court, and of potential importance to NPMHU representatives, were limitations on the use of “official” or union time and new rules for the use of union office space. 

Review the court’s 122-page opinion- No. 1:18-cv-1261 (KBJ)
