“Welcome back to the White House!” These were the words Vice President Joe Biden had for labor leaders at a signing ceremony Friday, where President Obama signed three executive orders affecting federal workers. These new policies follow the first bill signed by Obama, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, and the creation of a Task Force on Middle Class Working Families. These changes signal a quickly transforming labor landscape, which some see as a reason to celebrate. Others, of course, have concerns.

Do you belong to a union? Do you employ unionized workers? What do these changes mean for you? What are your hopes and fears for the future of organized labor in the next four years?
