President Donald Trump used executive orders to put up roadblocks for unions representing federal employees, and now President-elect Joe Biden seems poised to reverse those moves.

In May 2018, President Donald Trump signed executive orders mandating stricter deadlines and procedures when federal workers collectively negotiated new contracts, curbing on-the-clock time for union duties as well as giving some under-performing workers tight time frames to boost their performance.

Regional Transit Service has taken steps in recent weeks to try to protect employees and riders from the spread of coronavirus, but the president of the union representing RTS workers says more needs to be done.

"They're allowing people to ride without face coverings," said Jacques Chapman, president of Local 282 of the Amalgamated Transit Union. "I've spoken to RTS. They feel like the police department's not going to enforce this, which I believe they are required to."
