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.
This letter follows on a similar letter to the House Ag/FDA Appropriations Subcommittee. NTEU will continued to work throughout the process to see that agencies whose employees are represented by NTEU have the resources they need.
