Local 12 Spends a Week on Capitol Hill

Local 12 President, Mary Bacon, and Steward, John Bernstein, travelled to Washington, DC this week to meet with their lawmakers regarding several issues of importance to their membership, and IFPTE federal members overall.

The issues discussed ranged from funding for infrastructure improvements in the Bremerton Naval Shipyard as well as all public shipyards, advocating for well-deserved federal employee pay raises, and support of legislation to defund the ability of the Federal Services Impasses Panel to unilaterally impose draconian contracts on federal unions.

Bernstein and Bacon, who were joined on Capitol Hill by IFPTE Secretary-Treasurer/Legislative Director Matt Biggs visited with Representatives Derek Kilmer, Rick Larsen, Denny Heck, Elaine Luria and Senator Maria Cantwell, as well as with the staff of House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, and Senator Patty Murray.
