Tell Senate Leader Schumer — CONFIRM THE BIDEN FLRA NOMINEES NOW!
February 1, 2022
Over a year into the Biden Administration, a Trump-appointed majority on the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) is wreaking havoc on our federal workforce and continuing the last administration’s attacks on federal workers’ union rights.
Meanwhile, President Biden’s nominations for the FLRA are sitting in the Senate waiting to be confirmed.
Senate Majority Leader Schumer can prioritize restoring fairness to the FLRA and stop this anti-union FLRA majority from carrying on the last administration’s attack on federal workers’ collective bargaining rights.
Fill in your information using this Action Alert to send a letter urging your Senators to tell Senate Leader Schumer to confirm the nominees for FLRA immediately.
Note: if you are a New York state resident, you will send a letter tailored specifically to Senate Leader Schumer.
