Shut down.

This was in the update. But we should have put it here also. Sorry about that.

Shut Down

The shut down is coming. We are expecting an orderly shutdown (whatever that means) October 2nd. At this time it means, the office people and non-essential personnel will come in for 4 hours to clean up and shut down.

GEFTA is the law that was passed on the heels of the last extended shut down. It guarantees us back pay but doesn't extend us the dignity of being paid in a timely manner for our work that we have already provided.

Our next paycheck on 10/3 shouldn't be effected.

NATCA doesn't support work actions, so please take leave in accordance with our CBA. That being said technically if you take leave you will be placed into a furlough status.

OJTI will continue.

It you're willing to pass out leaflets please contact IA. If the shutdown goes on for a longer amount of time, we will do what we have done in the past and pass out information at IAH and HOU.

There is a possibility of a rally in D.C. 10/11. As of now we're not being asked to go. There are more calls scheduled for Wednesday 9/27 & Friday 9/29. So as more information becomes available it will be shared as quickly as we receive it.

If you are contacted by any media, Please do not give any statements. We do not speak on behalf of the FAA or NATCA. We NATCA have a public affairs department that we can refer inquires to.

Here’s a link to a NATCA payroll calculator spreadsheet I think is helpful in verifying the amount we should get paid eventually and what they actually give us. I’m not sure how often it’s updated
