Schedule F (Protecting the Civil Service from Political Corruption)


Schedule F stems from a Trump Executive Order (no longer in effect) in which tens of thousands of civil servants who serve in roles deemed to have some influence over policy would be reassigned as "Schedule F" employees. These employees would lose their employment and union protections upon re-assignment, making them functionally at-will employees and therefore far easier to fire. Further, Schedule F defies merit principles and instead would require political loyalty to a President. NFFE is taking action to ensure Schedule F cannot be imposed by future Presidents.
