Appeals court rules for Trump re federal workers

A federal appeals court handed President Trump a legal victory Tuesday when it ruled against labor unions representing government workers in their fight with the administration over workplace rules.

The unanimous decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit reversed a district court ruling last year that struck down key aspects of three executive orders. The provisions in question curtailed civil service protections and made it easier for employers to fire workers and weaken their union representation.

More than a dozen unions representing federal employees challenged the executive orders, which impact roughly 2.1 million civil servants, arguing they violated a 1978 law on collective bargaining.
