GSA Smoking Ban Puts Union on the Spot

The National Treasury Employees Union says it won't oppose the closing of smoking lounges in Federal Communications Commission buildings. NTEU had negotiated such lounges as part of its union contracts. But a General Services Administration decision to ban smoking lounges after June 19 in the 1,500 federal buildings it manages has put the NTEU in a sticky situation when it comes to federal office buildings not owned by the GSA. Union leaders contend those decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
