What's New at IBT 776
With a partial federal government shutdown that has left 800,000 government workers without a paycheck for nearly a month Local 776 decided to step up and help some of these workers. The Local bought groceries for furloughed TSA (Transportation Security Administration) Agents at Harrisburg International Airport who are being forced to work during the government shutdown and aren't getting paid. Helping with the grocery distribution were Local 776 Officers and BA’s including Ed Thompson, Ron Hicks, Dave Wolf, Eddie Sutton, Dave Licht, John Taylor, George Goodling, and Organizer Mark Cicak. Additionally 776 members employed at Piedmont Airlines based at HIA came out to help and show support for the TSA Agents: Andy Barnes – Local 776 Steward and Piedmont Mechanic, Dylan Lascoli - Piedmont Mechanic, and Anthony Jones - Piedmont Mechanic. Tom Felice, representing the PA Conference of Teamsters was also on hand to help out. Congress continues to play politics while they are being paid, the most essential people, the government workers, are being held hostage and not getting paid.
