  • Bill Introduced to Rescind Schedule F Executive Order
    Oct 28, 2020

    Legislation is introduced in the House to rescind the President’s Schedule F Executive Order and preserve the rights and protections provided to the career civil service.

    As you know, last week, President Trump issued an Executive Order (EO) establishing a new category of excepted service employees, known as Schedule F. This is a potentially far-reaching EO that could move tens of thousands of federal employees into the new Schedule F, which would strip them of their civil service protections, allow them to be hired and fired at will, and allow agencies to exclude employees classified as Schedule F from bargaining units. Schedule F would be broadly composed of “employees in confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions.”

    In response to this EO, Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the House Government Operations Subcommittee, joined by House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), introduced the Saving the Civil Service Act. This NTEU-endorsed bill would rescind the President’s EO creating Schedule F, prevent the use of funding to implement the EO or any successor EO, return positions and employees that are moved to Schedule F back to their previous designation, and prevent new employees that were non-competitively hired into a Schedule F position from converting to the competitive service.

    We applaud Chairman Connolly, Chairwoman Maloney, and Leader Hoyer for standing up for the rights of federal employees and working to preserve the non-partisan, merit-based civil service. As you know, NTEU also filed a lawsuit last night to invalidate this unlawful EO and we will continue to fight on every front to stop this EO and protect your rights.
