President Trump issued an Executive Order last night closing the federal government on Monday, December 24, thus giving federal employees the day off.

It is unclear how this would impact leave for federal employees on furlough should the government move into a shutdown. NTEU will share additional information if necessary. We are closely monitoring activities on Capitol Hill and the White House on funding for the NTEU-represented agencies currently operating under a Continuing Resolution that expires at midnight on Friday.
