Today, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of both the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) and the Appropriations Subcommittee for Labor, Health and Human Services (HHS), Education, and Related Agencies, which have jurisdiction over HHS activities and funding, sent a letter to Secretary Azar asking that he come back to the table and bargain in good faith with NTEU.

I am deeply grateful for the support of Senator Murray, especially given her leadership roles on both the authorizing and appropriating committees affecting HHS. If you have any questions on this matter, please feel free to contact your chapter president.
