One labor union’s perspective on the Biden administration’s latest moves to encourage union participation

The Biden Administration has made clear it wants to maximize union participation throughout the American workforce, both public and private. Last month, it took new steps meant to encourage it within the federal workforce specifically. Among other steps, the new guidelines tell agencies they should inform new hires about whether their new job is represented by a union, and which one it is. Matt Biggs is president of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers. He joined the Federal Drive to talk more about what the new guidelines mean for federal labor unions.
