The AFL-CIO, the largest U.S. union federation, is facing a labor complaint from its own employees over policies compelling them to return to the office.

The Washington-Baltimore News Guild filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board accusing the federation of violating federal labor law. The June 16 filing alleges that the AFL-CIO “has failed and refused to bargain in good faith” with the union over safety and health issues that stem from bringing staff back to the office.
