Action Needed – Stop the Government Shutdown

The government shutdown is now in its third week. And IAM members are still feeling the pain. More than 800,000 federal workers and contractors, including thousands of IAM and NFFE-IAM Federal District 1 members, are affected by this ridiculous government shutdown.

Please sign the IAM’s petition asking Senators to push Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring a vote to the Senate floor to reopen the government.

The House of Representatives passed reasonable, commonsense legislation to reopen and fund the government. But Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans refuse to bring it up for a vote.

Every day the federal government stays closed, hundreds of thousands of dedicated public employees go without pay.
