Joining a union is supposed to give federal employees benefits and protections they might not have otherwise.

Many union contracts have clauses to prevent layoffs, for example. But if you’re a fed who can’t or won’t join a union, that doesn’t mean you’re not protected.

Debra Roth, a Partner at Shaw Bransford and Roth, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris for the Legal Loop segment with tips on what employees can do if they suspect someone isn’t playing by the rules.

Roth addressed what kinds of feds cannot actually join unions and what kinds of rules protect them.
