DHS Shutdown Averted



NTEU Reacts To Stop-Gap DHS Funding Bill

UPDATED! Urge Congress to pass a full-year funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security before the short-term funding bill expires on March 6!

ButtonACT NOW! Ask your lawmakers to support legislation requiring that DHS employees not lose pay due to a shutdown and ensuring that employees who have to work aren't barred from taking leave.

TAKE ACTION! Ask your members of Congress to co-sponsor the FAIR Act, which would provide federal employees with a 3.8 percent pay increase for 2016.
