There are several unions that specialize in representing federal employees, e.g., AFGE, NFFE, and NTEU.  You could even say that they dominate the federal sector union landscape.  However, the IFPTE continues to rack up organizing victories in the federal sector.  It latest involved hundreds of NASA employees.  We are delighted any time federal employees decide to unionize, but IFPTE’s continued victories raise an intriguing question.  Why are employees scattering themselves across a wide variety of unions, such as SEIU, AFSCME, LIUNA, IFPTE, NNA, etc. rather than seeking help of the three better-known fed sector unions? Any thoughts?
