The IAM is supporting the bipartisan Fairness for Federal Contractors Act of 2019, introduced by U.S. Reps. Donald Norcross (D-NJ) and Chris Smith (R-NJ), which would provide federal contractors with back pay after the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. The legislation would instruct federal agencies to work with federal contractors to ensure that up to $1,400 of back pay is granted to all impacted contract workers.
