"EPA Workers Prepare for Return-to-Work Talks Amid Deep Concerns"

"The EPA’s biggest union will enter into bargaining with the agency July 13 for a week of talks about rapidly developing plans to reopen offices, according to the American Federation of Government Employees.

The negotiations will land shortly before many Environmental Protection Agency employees are expected to be called back to their offices, which AFGE employees from across the nation rebuked on a Thursday evening Zoom call with reporters.

The talks were supposed to start July 6, but were pushed back a week, Joyce Howell, an EPA staffer in Philadelphia and vice president of AFGE Local 3631, said on the call."
