When union employees want to take time off for political activity, they’re allowed to, but only as unscheduled and unpaid leave. The Postal Inspector General found that, in some districts, the practice, while legal, got out of hand because it wasn’t managed properly. It had the potential to wreak havoc on both budgets and employees who had to fill in. Charles Turley, deputy assistant inspector general for supply management and Human Resources, talks to Federal Drive with Tom Temin about the findings.
