Through executive orders and administrative actions, the Trump administration made many significant changes to federal sector labor relations over the last four years. Since taking office this January, President Biden has charted a different course, directing his administration to undo many of the Trump era changes and to restore the collective bargaining policies and practices of previous administrations. In his first 100 days, President Biden has revoked several controversial Trump executive orders, he has instructed agency heads to suspend actions taken to comply with the Trump orders, he has directed federal agencies to engage in bargaining over permissive subjects, and he has made significant personnel changes at the Federal Labor Relations Authority and the Federal Service Impasses Panel. This panel will discuss the major changes to federal sector labor relations that have occurred in the transition from Trump to Biden and will offer insights about practicing in this rapidly shifting area of law.
