In a letter to the Biden 2020 Campaign Director of Labor Engagement, Erika Dinkel-Smith, the Federal Workers Alliance (FWA), of which the Metal Trades Department is a member, asked that upon taking office the Biden administration “quickly reinstate and confirm the rights of federal workers by undoing the wrongs that have been perpetrated upon them for the past four years.”

The FWA wrote that they “hope to serve as a resource to the incoming administration so that federal workers can again work in an environment of peace and security.”

In the five page letter, the FWA outlines all of the items they would like to see addressed, including the immediate reversal of the Trump administration executive orders.

Dozens of historic deadly wildfires continue to consume millions of acres in the west, especially in California, Oregon and Washington where in some cases entire towns have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes.

Most evacuees have had to leave quickly with little advance notice, taking what few belongings they could. Thousands of homes and businesses have been incinerated. Weather conditions are improving, but the fire danger isn’t over. Wildfires are also burning in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana.

The Metal Trades Department has compiled a list of resources for our members and employment partners. If you need additional assistance, contact your MTD General Representative.
