FDA scientistA new NTEU campaign designed to bust some common myths about federal employees launched yesterday with a satellite media tour.

Over the course of five hours, NTEU National President Tony Reardon was interviewed by more than 20 radio and TV stations in 17 states about who federal employees are, where they live and work, and how their work impacts Americans every day. This is part of NTEU’s ongoing efforts to change the conversation about the federal workforce and help tell our story.

NTEU published a two-page myth-busters document debunking some of the most common misconceptions about federal employees. I encourage you to share this information in your social networks and encourage your friends to learn more at
