Hoffa, Teamsters Call on Congress to Reopen Government

Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa joined other labor leaders at a rally today in the nation’s capital to call for an end of a partial federal government shutdown that has left 800,000 government workers without a paycheck for nearly a month.

Speaking outside of Nationals Park, Hoffa said it is time for the Senate to vote on a funding bill approved by the House earlier this month that would fully reopen the government and allow not only federal workers but contractors as well to return to the job with pay.
