Hundreds in Oklahoma part of lawsuit over government closure

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - January 13, 2019 9:38 am

(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Hundreds of federal aviation workers in Oklahoma are part of a union that has sued the U.S. government over the continuing partial shutdown and having employees that are on the job who are not getting paid.
The Oklahoman reported Saturday that the lawsuit filed by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association says some members are working but not getting paid in violation of due process. The lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court in Washington, D.C.
The newspaper reports that at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, in southwest Oklahoma City, 1,146 federal employees are furloughed and 593 are working without pay, along with federal contractors and support staff.
Saturday was Day 22 of a partial government shutdown, becoming the longest closure in U.S. history.
