The problems with unions representing Federal employees are:
- They only truly represent a minority of employees.
- There is an anti-union bias among many Congressional members.
- Unions mostly complain, but don’t highlight achievements.
However, we have a great advocate in the Partnership for Public Service. They could certainly lobby on our behalf and share success stories in a positive light. They are also respected on Capital Hill and truly seek to represent all Federal employees. We are all fortunate to have them as advocates on our behalf. They also sponsor eventa liike Public Service Recognition Week, SAMMIE awards, and publish the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government report.
