No, I mean that the range of things that fed unions can collectively bargain over are more limited than what you get in states, esp WI. Not really surprising, though, when you consider the feds overall track record w/its own regulations and putting themselves above the laws/agencies they often create and straight-jacket the private sector with.

Well, at least he didn't play favorites. And it wasn't like he didn't give them a chance to return to work before dropping the hammer.
