A union representing Social Security Administration employees is calling for President Biden's administration put a stop to a new "pronoun policy" related transgender workers.
The union is arguing that the "pronoun policy" imposes political views on members.
"American Federation of Government Employees Local 2505 filed a grievance Friday over a policy announced internally on Wednesday called the 'Policy on Prohibiting Discrimination, Including Harassment, Based on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, or Gender Expression,'" reports JustTheNews.
Biden's Policies Keep Frustrating Americans
"The union, which represents 600 low-level employees in Oklahoma and Arkansas, said the policy changed restroom access, the dress code, and 'created a new form with the employee’s name, gender identity, pronouns,'" reported the Daily Wire.
"All of the changes are violations of ... existing terms and conditions of employment," reads the grievance.
SSA Commissioner Kilolo Kijakazi announced the policy last week, calling it, "Building an Equitable and Inclusive Culture: Gender Identity."
"Soon, you will receive notice of a mandatory training to help you prepare for full implementation of the policy, which will happen on March 31, 2023," said Kijakazi's email.
"The 27-page policy, obtained by the news outlet, defines the terms agender, bigender, cisgender, gender diverse, genderfluid, genderqueer, and gender nonconforming, nonbinary, and two-spirit, and lays out numerous ways in which the agency will support employees who wish to transition to one of those categories," reports JustTheNews.
