Looking through the blogs posted by law firms representing federal employees, we ran across a useful post from PINESFEDERAL, a firm operating out of D.C., Houston and Atlanta. Fedsmill has posted a ton of material on reasonable accommodations, but we liked how this firm covered the issue simply.  In a perfect world, this is a piece that a union would forward to all its members or prospective members to alert them as to a benefit they may not even know they are entitled to. If your union experience is like mine, you have seen that most employees have no idea of all the rights they have.  We can thank the American education system for demanding high school students learn more about the War of the Roses than the laws in place to benefit them over the next 40+ years of their life. In any event, here is the post we recommend you forward to all stewards if no one else.
