Judge Stops Bush Effort to Eliminate Federal Workers’ Rights

Source: AFL-CIO

In a major win for federal workers, a U.S. judge for the second time denied the Bush administration’s efforts to destroy the civil service system covering 160,000 employees at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Aug. 12 ruling blocking new personnel rules that would have virtually eliminated employees’ bargaining and workplace rights and ended civil service pay scales. On Oct. 7, Collyer rejected the administration’s request and accepted the unions’ argument that the rules essentially would eliminate the collective bargaining process.

After DHS issued the rules in January, AFGE and four other unions filed suit, arguing that significant parts of the proposed personnel system would violate the Homeland Security Act
