Abstract : On March 3, 1993, President Bill Clinton created the National Performance Review (NPR) with the goal of transforming the government into one that 'works better and costs less' The efforts of the NPR have also been popularly called 'reinventing government' which forms the core Clinton Administration policy concerning federal labor relations. Vice President A1 Gore was put at the helm of the reinvention effort and was tasked to review federal government operations. On September 23, 1993, Vice President Gore released a report of this review effort. The report was prepared with the help of experts and input from federal employees listing numerous recommendations to change the way the federal government operates. This paper will explore the Clinton Administration's NPR initiatives and their effect on federal labor relations. The paper will also examine other Administration measures and postures concerning labor relations and how these efforts affect the federal sector. The positions of Republicans, organized labor, and various other commentators concerning federal labor relations and their reaction to Clinton Administration initiatives will also be explored.
