CWA Statement on Trump’s Executive Order Taking Away Job Protections

Friday, November 1, 2019

A statement from Communications Workers of America President Chris Shelton on Trump’s Executive Order stripping away job protections from federal government service contract workers:

“Why does Trump keep taking away workers’ rights? Because his billionaire buddies are telling him that’s what they want, and he is always happy to do their bidding. This Executive Order makes it easier for federal contractors to fire people and force them to uproot their lives even when their job isn’t going anywhere. The leader of our government should be putting the rights of working people first in the government’s dealings -- not selling out workers to appease corporate special interests.”
