The National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) says if the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act (S. 1094) is passed in the U.S. Senate it will open VA workers to political with-hunts.
The union says it weakens "systematic protections for employees who speak up against unsafe practices and political coercion."
NFFE union President Randy Erwin says says if this bill passes "honest VA employees will be open to intimidation and will be deterred from coming forward as whistleblowers."
Unions call this the VA Firing Bill.
