President Obama Reauthorizes Labor Management Partnership Executive Order


Federal workers and managers had much to give thanks for this holiday as President Obama announced Wednesday his reauthorization of a 2010 executive order calling for labor-management partnerships throughout the government.

The President announced that the labor-management partnership order would be extended through September of 2013, at which time it will need to be reauthorized to continue its work.

“We are pleased that the President has chosen to extend this invaluable forum for federal workers and managers,” said NFFE National President Dougan, who sits on the National Council of Federal Labor Management Relations. “This good-government policy has made great progress in ushering in a new culture of cooperation in the federal workforce. Its extension will ensure that yet more progress will be made for workers, managers, and taxpayers.”
