IFPTE President Paul Shearon and IFPTE Secretary-Treasurer Matt Biggs participated in a meeting at the Capitol this week with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D - MD) and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D - DC).

The meeting, which included leaders from AFGE, NFFE, NTEU and NARFE, focused on the 2020 federal pay raise, how to block the Administrationís planned dismantling of OPM, and discussing legislative options for reverse the impact of the Trump Administrationís union-busting executive orders.

Shearon commented on the meeting, ďIFPTE thanks the House Majority Leader and Congresswoman Norton for gathering us all together to focus on avenues toward protecting the due process and collective bargaining rights of our nationís federal workers. IFPTE appreciates their strong support.Ē The meeting comes at a time when IFPTE and other unions are advocating for appropriations language to alleviate the damage caused by the executive orders, among other legislative priorities.
