LANL employees bidding

Is there any potential for an LLC owned by LANL employees bidding on the Lab M&O Contract.

CH2M Hill which does work at various DOE and NNSA sites is an employee owned company, another is Parsons Engineering (100% employee owned), so it seems that this approach is not completely out of left field.

It would probably have to be initially organized by senior management type LANL retirees who understand the contracting business in NNSA/DOE, and have the time/personal financial resources to invest in the effort. 

An employee owned LLC probably has little chance of actually winning the bid, but it would make news and send DOE/NNSA HQ a clear message that employees at LANL are tied of being taken for granted. Without the skills/knowledge the 10,000 employees at LANL possess, the Lab would cease to exist - nothing more than several hundred empty buildings.

Why don't the technical employees collectively bargain? The advanced technical skills they have are far more valuable to the country than whatever the managers are bringing to the table.
