    NTEU urges Congress to pass legislation to provide emergency paid leave to federal employees.

    SUMMARY:? NTEU urges Congress to pass legislation to provide emergency paid
    leave to federal employees.
    Today, NTEU sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader
    Chuck Schumer on the urgent need for Congress to pass legislation to provide federal workers
    with additional emergency paid leave. Last year, as part of President Biden’s American Rescue
    Plan, Congress authorized emergency paid leave for federal employees who tested positive for
    COVID-19, interacted with someone who was infected with the virus, or were caring for an
    infected loved one. This program expired on September 30, 2021. The current guidance
    requires employees to use their own leave, which is unacceptable. This causes employees,
    through no fault of their own, to have to exhaust their personal leave. We have heard far too
    many stories of federal workers who feel they have to choose between going to work sick and
    risking their colleague’s health or being forced to take leave without pay; all while the pandemic
    continues.
    NTEU will continue to fight every day to ensure that federal employees are able to stay
    home when sick without having to worry about losing a paycheck and that those who report to
    the worksite are in a safe and clean environment.
    We will keep you updated with any developments. For more information, click here.
