From the Washington Post (I've avoided parts of the article that are obviously slanted against the employee unions):
Federal agencies on Monday begin implementing executive orders from President Trump on how to confront employee unions, following strict guidelines likely to escalate tensions that have been building since the president took office. ...
The administration wants agencies to reopen collective bargaining agreements to reduce the on-duty time union representatives spend representing employees. Managers are directed to “monitor and carefully report” on the time and make the information publicly available. And agencies are directed to move swiftly to fire poor performers, renegotiating any contracts that allow for progressive discipline.
The conflict appears headed for a showdown, either in federal court, where the unions have filed numerous lawsuits challenging the orders, or in Congress. The administration and the unions have courted Capitol Hill allies, with Republicans supporting Trump’s tactics and Democrats backing the unions, a key constituency. ...See below for the grievance that has been filed by the union representing most Social Security employees in response to this.

I'm a neutral non-combatant in this battle. However, the Trump order is clearly a declaration of war. The Supreme Court's obvious hostility to employee unions may help Trump but he may also need continued GOP control of both houses of Congress to win this war.
The Washington Post piece is not worthy of a great newspaper. It's filled with pejorative references to federal employees and their unions. I don't think that even Rupert Murdock's Wall Street Journal would have written a piece like that. Joe Davidson, who normally covers federal employee matters for the Post, wrote a much more even-handed piece.
