As a reminder, the following NTEU-represented agencies are currently under a lapse of appropriations: IRS and other Department of Treasury Offices and Bureaus, CBP and FLETC, CFTC, EPA, FCC, FDA, FEC, NPS, PTO, SEC, and USDA.
The stalemate over reopening the government continues. There were no meetings over the weekend between the administration and congressional leaders.
During an event at the White House yesterday afternoon President Trump said that he will sign S. 24, which passed Congress last week. This NTEU-supported legislation would ensure that all federal employees are paid promptly following a government shutdown and that those employees who are required to work during a shutdown are allowed to take leave.
As we begin week four of the government shutdown, NTEU will continue sharing your stories and fighting to end this shutdown. We will keep you updated on further developments. For more information, please click here.
