The Nation

A decade of bargaining between the Air Force Logistics Command and a federal workers’ union has ended with the military offering child care to the command’s 83,000 civilian employees nationwide. The Assn. of Federal Government Employees since 1978 had sought Air Force funding for union-operated day care for children of civilian AFLC employees. The agreement gives control to the Air Force, which by October will expand its existing AFLC child-care facilities and offer them to all families of civilian workers. Families of uniformed personnel in the Air Force, as in other services, long have had access to subsidized day care.
