Telework and the "Show Up" Act
NFFE-IAM opposes the “Show Up” Act (H.R. 139), legislation introduced by Rep. James Comer (R-KY) that would force federal employees to return to physical offices within 30 days if they had been working in an office prior to the COVID pandemic. This legislation is a dishonest political stunt designed to disparage America’s public servants. The bill is based on misinformation and ignores the fact that more than half the federal workforce continued to work in-person over the past three years, and productivity increased among those working remotely.
