WHY FEW FEDERAL WORKERS ARE FIRED

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 22, 2022

    WANT TO KNOW WHY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO GROW? HERE’S ONE REASON, COURTESY OF THE WASHINGTON TIMES AND THE CONSERVATIVE AMERICA FIRST POLICY INSTITUTE.

    A SURGICAL TECH AT A VETERANS AFFAIRS CLINIC IN ARKANSAS WAS FIRED IN 2017 AFTER SHE ADMITTED TO SEXUALLY CHARGED BEHAVIOR WITH COLLEAGUES.  HER LABOR UNION APPEALED THE DECISION TO ARBITRATION AND THE ARBITOR REDUCED HER PUNISHMENT TO A 30-DAY SUSPENSION AND PUT HER BACK ON THE JOB – WITH A YEAR’S WORTH OF BACK PAY.

    SHE IS NOT ALONE.  AFTER REVIEWING HUNDREDS OF CASES, THE INSTITUTE CONCLUDED THAT IN MOST CASES IN WHICH A UNION FILES A GRIEVANCE DEMANDING ARBITRATION, THE ARBITER OVERTURNS THE FIRING AND REINSTATES THE WORKER.

    THIS IS A BIG REASON WHY IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIRE A FEDERAL WORKER WHO BELONGS TO A UNION. THE UNIONS ARE ALSO BIG CONTRIBUTORS TO DEMOCRATS AND GET THIS – THE UNIONS HELP SELECT THE ARBITERS. TALK ABOUT A CONFLICT OF INTEREST!

    WHEN WILL THIS END? CAN IT END? IT DEPENDS LARGELY ON THE TYPE OF PEOPLE ELECTED TO OFFICE WHO WRITE THE LAWS. WILL YOU BE VOTING IN NOVEMBER? DO YOU KNOW WHAT CANDIDATES STAND FOR? I’M CAL THOMAS.
