On May 25th, the President released three Executive Orders impacting federal employees and their unions. POPA has joined with twelve other unions to bring a law suit against President Trump, OPM and the OPM administrator, alleging that the Executive Orders are unlawful (a copy of the filing has been posted here). We have requested that the government be enjoined from enforcing the Orders. A hearing has been set for July 25th and we expect a decision the following day.
