NTEU's legislative conference starts Tuesday
Members of the National Treasury Employees Union will gather in Washington for three days starting Tuesday for the federal union's annual legislative conference, amid the threat of a government shutdown and other changes that could be in the works for civil servants.
Kelley is expected to address the ongoing debate about the federal budget, a possible government shutdown and calls by House Republicans for cuts to the workforce.
Kelley also will discuss the upcoming union election between NTEU and the American Federation of Government Employees to represent Transportation Security Administration workers, whom the Obama administration recently granted limited collective bargaining rights.
The conference starts Tuesday at 9 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington.
