National President Dougan Issues Statement on the Impact of a Potential Government Shutdown

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Washington, D.C. – In response to administration plans to commence preparations for a potential government shutdown, National Federation of Federal Employees National President William R. Dougan issued the following statement:


"A government shutdown would be devastating for federal workers at agencies where funding has not yet been approved by Congress. A shutdown would lead to furloughs and missed paychecks for thousands of federal employees at a time when they can least afford it. Federal workers shouldn't have to spend the holidays worrying about how to make their next mortgage payment simply because Congress can't get its act together. Federal employees, and indeed all Americans, deserve better from their government. NFFE and our allies are prepared to take an all-hands-on-deck approach to stave off a shutdown and make sure federal workers have a happy holiday.”
