President Bush barred some federal workers from unionizing

Bush issued an executive order that defined the primary objective of some 8,600 federal agency employees to be national security-related, rendering them ineligible for Federal Labor-Management Relations Program [5 USC § 7101 et seq.] coverage such as collective bargaining rights. Among the affected subdivisions were the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Department of Energy's Savannah River Operations Office, and certain offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Transportation Security Administration, and the US Coast Guard.
