EPA Union Urges Employees to Rally on Capitol Hill for ‘Respect’

Environmental Protection Agency employees are being urged to join a rally on Capitol Hill next month by a union representing the agency, according to an email obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 280 sent an invitation to the rally on the EPA email system during work hours, encouraging employees to rally for "respect." "Please join NTEU members from across the country as we rally at the U.S. Capitol for fair pay, a secure retirement, and respect," the email, which was sent Wednesday, states. "We really need you to come for this," the union said. "Now, more than ever it's important that EPA employees stand together." The rally comes at a time when government bureaucrats, including career employees for the EPA, are vowing to resist the new Trump administration. In an unprecedented effort, EPA employees called their senators last week pressing them to vote against Scott Pruitt as the new EPA administrator. The New York Times called it "a remarkable display of activism and defiance that presages turbulent times ahead for the EPA." Pruitt was confirmed by a vote of 52-46. Other EPA employees were still crying at work more than two months after Hillary Clinton's election loss...more

Do they really think this is the way to gain the respect of Trump and others? being a pawn in the union's agenda?

Respect is earned, not demanded.
EPA/ACE has no respect for the American people, U.S.Constitution, Bill of Rights, or property rights.
Tyrant bureaucrats circumventing freedom, liberty, and everything good.
