SEQUESTRATION: WHAT UNION LEADERS NEED TO KNOW
If we fall off the cliff, “sequestration” will be a word union leaders use often over the next few months. There are two documents you might want to be aware of at the very outset of the process. The first is a web update that Government Executive is posting with information about what each department of government or independent agency has decided to do so far. We hope you get far more details from your LR folks, but if not, start here. The other is a report issued by the White House providing some details about how sequestration will operate in each agency. Union leaders will need far more details to bargain over the impact and implementation of the process, but this will give them a solid initial background in the topic.
