Congressional Support for HHS Bargaining

Key House Committee Members urge HHS Secretary Azar to come back to the bargaining table with NTEU.

Thumb upYesterday, members of the House Education and Workforce Committee, which has jurisdiction over labor and workforce issues, sent a letter to Secretary Azar asking that he come back to the table and bargain in good faith with NTEU.

The members who signed the letter are Representatives Bobby Scott (Ranking Member, D-VA), Susan Davis (D-CA), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Joe Courtney (D-CT), Marcia Fudge (D-OH), Jared Polis (D-CO), Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan (D-MP), Frederica Wilson (D-FL), Suzanna Bonamici (D-OR), Mark Takano (D-CA), Alma Adams (D-NC), Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA), Donald Norcross (D-NJ), Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY).

I am deeply grateful for the support of these Representatives, especially given their role on labor issues.

If you have any questions on this matter, please share them with your chapter president. Thank you.
