Senate Confirms FLRA Nominee

Frontline federal employees welcome Wednesday's Senate vote that restores the Federal Labor Relations Authority to its fully operational status with all three seats filled, including two members nominated by President Biden.

The FLRA plays an important role as a fair, neutral arbiter of labor-management disputes in the federal sector, protecting the rights of federal employees and holding agencies accountable for unfair labor practices, which is why ensuring a fully functioning FLRA is important to frontline civil servants.

NTEU had previously endorsed Anne M. Wagner’s nomination because of her extensive experience in the practice of federal sector labor law and labor-management relations and we are pleased she has been confirmed by the Senate.

The FLRA is now able to function as the law intended, including the ability to break ties and issue decisions that are important to the operation of all federal agencies.
