Federation is currently a poor fit for worker queues since you can only 
federate exchanges; federating an exchange means that messages published 
to that exchange can be consumed in all locations.

You might be able to rig something up by federating the random or 
consistent hash exchanges, any exchange which will only route to one 

We are working on implementing federated queues, which will hopefully be 
the correct solution for your problem.
