President Trump issued three executive orders chipping away at some of the crazier aspects of the federal civil service.
The first executive order aims to strengthen accountability for federal employees and makes it easier to fire poor performers in the federal government.
The second executive order creates a federal labor relations working group to analyze union contracts with the federal government. It also makes it harder to pay federal unions to appeal firings and to lobby Congress.
The third executive order, focused on federal unions, is aimed at reducing waste and expenditures and requires federal employees to spend at least 75 percent of their time working on the job they were hired to do, as opposed to working on federal union work. It will also allow the federal government to start charging unions for office space in federal buildings.

If there's one thing besides winning in WWII that I'm with FDR on, it's that public sector unions should not be allowed.

I'll bet the public sector unions are squealing at the idea that they ought to spend 75% of their taxpayer-paid time doing the job taxpayers are paying them to do.
