In defeat for Americans, Obama appointee judge overturns key parts of Trump executive orders

The rules restricted the use of “official time” — on-duty time that union officials can spend representing their members in grievances and on other issues. The new rules limited the issues that could be bargained over in union negotiations. And they rolled back the rights of workers deemed to be poor performers to appeal disciplinary action against them.
When the White House announced the new rules, Andrew Bremberg, head of the president’s Domestic Policy Council, said the unions are major contributors to driving up costs and have paralyzed agencies’ efforts to discipline poor performers and make the government more accountable to taxpayers.
“These executive orders make it easier for agencies to remove poor-performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Bremberg said at the time. The president, he noted, called on Congress during his State of the Union address “to empower every Cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove those that undermine the public trust or fail the American people.”

Why should American taxpayers be paying government employees to spend more than 25% of their paid time at work promoting Democrat political causes? The unions are scared since the Supreme Court overturned the law which allowed the public unions to require all government employees to be members or pay dues, money that they then use to support Democrat political causes. Not being able to force everyone to join took a chunk out of their bottom line, hopefully the administration can appeal this activist judge's ruling so that taxpayers no longer have to pay for offices and full time democrat political activists in the guise of union organization.
