Pittsburgh, PA – As the partial government shutdown continues with no end in sight, federal workers across the country are facing the reality of missed paychecks and the impact that will have on their lives, their families, and their communities.

American Federation of Government Employees Local 332, which represents about 500 Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees at Pittsburgh International Airport and airports across Pennsylvania, is calling lawmakers and the administration to end this shutdown.

“We have members across the state who are worried about feeding their families and paying their bills,” AFGE Local 332 President William Reese said.

The Trump administration is moving to require additional federal workers to report to their jobs, without pay.
