NFFE Fights to Protect VA Members from Congressional Attacks
Get the bulletin board-ready story, here.
While federal employees are forced to endure attack after attack from the current anti-worker Congress, one agency has experienced a particularly toxic stream of attacks in recent years. Following a national scandal in 2014, nurses and doctors at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have been under constant attack from Congress. While many of the attacks have been shrouded in the thin veil of “accountability measures,” NFFE has fought these measures for what they really are: attempts to erode the constitutional due process protections of federal employees undergoing disciplinary proceedings. Now, Congress appears poised to take the attacks one step further with the impending vote on S. 2921, a bill overhauling how rank-and-file employees are treated by management—but not without a fight from NFFE and our allies on Capitol Hill.
