IFPTE Joins Fed-Postal Coalition Endorsement of the Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act of 2017

IFPTE joined with twenty-three other federal worker organizations in signing a letter of support for the Paid Parental Leave Act of 2017. The bipartisan bill, sponsored by Representatives Barbara Comstock (R-VA), and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), provides federal workers with six weeks of paid leave in relation to the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child. In endorsing the legislation, the letter states that, "Parents should not be forced to make difficult trade-offs between spending this time with their child, or being able to pay their bills."
