NTEU Sues Government Over the Shutdown

The National Treasury Employees Union has become the latest federal employee union to file a lawsuit against the government over the shutdown.

The lawsuit alleges the government is violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by requiring federal employees to work without pay during the partial government shutdown.

β€œIt is unconscionable that many employees are having to work – and in some cases overtime – with no pay whatsoever,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon.

NTEU is asking the court to order compensation for affected federal employees as well as 100 percent matching liquidated damages.

1. And NO ONE will fight the suit

 

The court merely needs to tell the Federal government HOW to comply.

Absent a Constitutional Amendment, the court has no remedies.
