Trump to Remove these Members of TVA-Board

President Donald Trump said on Monday that he was officially discharging two members from Tennessee Valley Authority board, and slammed its chief executive as overpaid.

In remarks during an event at White House, Trump threatened to abstract the agency’s chief executive, Jeff Lyash, and called on the utility’s board to do so. Trump has formerly opposed the agency and vowed firm disciplinary action against it.

The TVA had formerly come under attack by U.S. Tech workers, a nonprofit organisation formed to fight the growth of H1-B1 visas to foreign workers. The group pleaded with Trump, who has the authority to appoint the TVA board, to sack Lyash for laying off U.S. workers and replacing them with contractors, hiring foreign workers, displaying an ad on cable television.

The Chattanooga Free Press revealed in June that TVA had sacked 62 IT workers in Chattanooga and Knoxville as it migrate to outsource more data and programming work.

Later on at the same event, Trump said he had been noted that Lyash had reached out to the White House and showed a strong ability to reverse course. The TVA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump has also clashed with the TVA in the past over its plans to terminate coal-fired power plants. He has also previously proposed putting parts of the government-owned entity to the private sector on sale.

The U.S. Tech workers’ team showcased an ad on cable television that reviewed Lyash received an $8.1 million compensation token, which make him the “highest-paid federal employee in America.”

Trump said the seat was overpaid, and the CEO should not be making more than $500,000 yearly.
