  Regular FMCS Services Have Been Suspended in Federal Government Shutdown

Release Date: 10/1/2013

Due to a lack of funding, regular FMCS services have been suspended until Congress restores funding for FMCS services.  During this time FMCS will provide essential collective bargaining mediation in labor negotiations involving national defense industries, health care (hospital) industries, and utilities (power generation and negotiation impacting a nuclear facility).  If your phone call [or e-mail] concerns a request for mediation in any negotiations in these industries, please contact Deputy Director Scot Beckenbaugh at 202-606-8100 or sbeckenbaugh@fmcs.gov.  Please make certain you call and establish contact at the number or e-mail listed above.  Voice mail left on other FMCS phones will not be monitored during the suspension of operations, neither will employees be checking work e-mail.
