WaPo: Obama rewards Teamsters, Teachers

Federal unions given over to Hoffa, radical leftwingers

Federal employee unions may have a friend in the White House, but Barack Obama is still management.

• The members

With that in mind, 21 labor organizations that collectively represent 300,000 federal workers have joined forces in a new Federal Workers Alliance.

Noticeably absent from the list are the two largest federal unions, the American Federation of Government Employees and the National Treasury Employees Union. Their absence has a subplot linked to intensifying competition over airport security screeners, a major contingent both groups want to organize.

The Alliance does, however, include large, powerful unions that have relatively few federal workers among their members, including the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Teamsters and national teachers unions.
