Outsourcing: AFGE Strikes Back!


 Update: AFGE has also sent yours truly this point-by-point refutation of industry’s opposition to the CLEAN UP Act.

We told you earlier today about a Republican bill introduced yesterday to promote the outsourcing of commercial work performed by federal employees.

Now enter the American Federation of Government Employees, a privatization foe, announcing it has taken “its contracting out reform campaign to the House of Representatives.”

In a  June 4 news release, union boss John Gage applauded the introduction of Mikulski’s CLEAN UP Act in the House by Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md. 

Gage said:

The CLEAN UP Act is vital to any serious effort to save taxpayer dollars and restore integrity to the federal procurement process…The bill calls on the Obama administration to correct problems in the Office of Management and Budget’s privatization process that have been identified by the Government Accountability Office, the Department of Defense Inspector General, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton (D-MO), and others, before again using the A-76 circular.
