WASHINGTON (AP) — Staffers at the White House budget office say they want to be represented by a labor union.

About half of the career work force at the Office of Management and Budget filed a petition on Monday seeking to join the nation's largest federal employee union.

A spokesman for the American Federation of Government Workers says OMB employees want more input over working conditions. OMB staffers are often called in to work evenings and weekends.

If the petition is approved by a federal agency, a vote could come later this summer.

OMB spokesman Kenneth Baer says the Obama administration strongly supports the right of workers to unionize.

The union would not represent any political appointees, or supervisors or managers.
