Workers to picket at Sunny Point entrance following gov’t shutdown
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Federal workers will be off the job this morning following the partial government shutdown. The news comes after Congress’ failure to reach a deal on a temporary spending measure, and employees right here in our area are taking a stand.
This morning, on behalf of the employees of Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point, a release from the American Federation of Government Employees, AFGE, says workers will form a ‘picket line’ at Sunny Point’s entrance beginning at 11:30 a.m.
According to a release, the AFGE, alongside Sunny Point employees, will continue to picket everyday, all week long, and as long as their jobs are in jeopardy.
