Local 1's Matthew Latham Calls It Like It Is, Talks Pay Freeze with Congressional Lawmakers and the Local News

Last week, immediately following President Trump's announcement that he will recommend a pay freeze for our nation's federal workers, Local 1 VP, Matthew Latham, represented IFPTE at a labor sponsored meeting with Virginia Senator Tim Kaine and Representative Bobby Scott in Eastern Virginia, explaining how damaging the pay freeze is to federal workers such as himself.

He was also interviewed by Local ABC news affiliate, News 13, telling viewers that the pay freeze will cause federal workers to fall "more behind" compared to the cost of inflation. IFPTE thanks Brother Latham, who is a strong advocate for Local 1 and the IFPTE International's legislative efforts, for representing IFPTE at the meeting.
