Shutdown Resources

NATCA has negotiated a procedural Memorandum of Understand (MOU) with the FAA. The procedural MOU and the Furlough MOU apply to all FAA NATCA BUEs regardless of collective bargaining agreement. The procedural MOU, the Furlough MOU, and some FAQs are available at the links below. NATCA continues to work with the FAA to ensure that the Agency’s list of “excepted employees” – who are not subject to a furlough during this shutdown – is as accurate as possible.
