Statement of NTEU National President Tony Reardon

The congressional override of the president’s veto of the NDAA ensures that federal employees will not lose leave they earned but were unable to take in 2020.

Throughout the long year, federal workers were on the job keeping vital programs in place, protecting our country, working to combat the coronavirus and assisting Americans across the country. NTEU is pleased that they will be able to keep additional leave they earned but were unable to take. Our frontline federal workforce is on the job in good times and bad, and the action by Congress is important recognition of their work.
