Trump is trying to rescind LGBTQ worker protections at the National Labor Relations Board

The Trump administration is trying to rescind protections for LGBTQ workers at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that have been in place since 2002, prompting outrage from the NLRB Professional Association, an organization that represents NLRB workers.

NLRBPA President Karen Cook sent a letter on Thursday, March 5 to Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) that LGBTQ Nation has obtained. The letter informs Feinstein of how two administration officials are attempting to get rid of protections for LGBTQ workers.

The NLRB is the federal agency responsible for enforcing labor law, particularly when it comes to collective bargaining and unjust labor practices.

Currently, LGBTQ workers at the NLRB are protected by terms of a collective bargaining agreement that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation in 2002. In 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreed to by the NLRB and the NLRBPA also banned discrimination based on gender identity.


Shhhh...don't tell nobody, we wouldn't want people thinking GLBT people are "real" minorities or anything.
