NTEU has written to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee with jurisdiction over FDA with NTEU’s funding request for FY 2019.
NTEU sent a letter to the members of the United States Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture/FDA. In it, NTEU National President Tony Reardon requested appropriate funding for the FDA.
I believe Tony’s request is moderate and reasonable. I also believe it is the minimum FDA needs in order to carry out its important mission. I am pleased that, unlike at other agencies, the administration’s position is fairly close to NTEU’s position.
FDA has provided Article 3 notice to NTEU that ORA plans to implement a new mobile device policy.
FDA recently provided notice to NTEU that the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) plans to implement a new mobile device policy. The notice document contains no information about the specific policy changes but includes the draft copy of the policy for review. NTEU has requested a briefing to learn more about the policy changes, and to bargain the change.
