UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
February 27, 2006
AMERICAN FEDERATION OF GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, AFL-CIO, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
DONALD H. RUMSFELD, SECRETARY, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Emmet G. Sullivan United States District Judge
For the reasons discussed in the accompanying Memorandum Opinion, the Court concludes that: (1) defendants satisfied their statutory obligation to collaborate with plaintiffs; (2) defendants lawfully departed from chapter 71 in establishing a labor relations system; (3) the new rule fails to ensure that employees can bargain collectively; (4) the NSLRB does not meet Congress' requirement for "independent third party review" of labor relations decisions; and (5) the process for appealing adverse actions fails to provide employees with "fair treatment," as required by Congress. Therefore, it is hereby
ORDERED that plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED IN PART AND DENIED IN PART; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that defendant's Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED IN PART AND DENIED IN PART; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that the defendants are permanently enjoined from implementing Subparts G and H of 5 C.F.R. § 9901; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that Subpart I of 5 C.F.R. § 9901 is permanently enjoined, unless and until this Court approves any proposed order submitted by defendants that selectively enjoins Subpart I in a manner consistent with this Court's Memorandum Opinion.
