June 18, 2010 - Derrick T. Dortch talks to National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) President Colleen M. Kelley about their opposition to the FCIP.

Kelley said to a Senate subcommittee, "As it has been misused by federal agencies, the FCIP is far from the program it was intended to be."

Kelley and the NTEU has said that the FCIP is being used to circumvent the competitive hiring process. She has called for an end to the FCIP.

Dortch talks to Kelley on why the NTEU is so opposed to the FCIP.
