How Public Sector Unions Are Adjusting to a Post-Trump World

Erich Wagner joins the podcast to discuss the state of organized labor in federal workplaces.

Six years ago, the election of Donald Trump as president sparked a wave of federal employees becoming dues-paying union members. In the years of Trump’s presidency, the White House brought forward a plan to merge OPM and GSA, stepped up rhetoric about “deep state bureaucrats” and rolled out a series of executive orders making it easier to fire federal workers and clamping down on unions’ role at federal agencies. It has been, in short, a roller coaster.

Senior reporter Erich Wagner is the reporter behind the GovExec feature story headlined “State of the Unions: A New Normal." He joined the podcast to talk about the state of organized labor.
