Senator Warren: (3:28 p.m.)

  • Spoke on federal government employees.
    • "His latest assault, in the form of three executive orders, undermines collective bargaining rights that have protected federal workers' voices in their workplaces since the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. Passed this Senate by 87-1. These orders disrupt the bargaining process that federal workers have used for decades, and they interfere with the ability of unions to represent their members. For example, one of President Trump's executive orders severely cut down on the time that unions can spend helping their workers navigate the process for filing a workplace sexual harassment claim or getting whistle-blower protections in order to report fraud and corruption in the government."
