According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, a union that represents thousands of US air traffic controllers filed a lawsuit against the federal government, claiming that failure to pay workers during the ongoing partial government shutdown endangers the safety of passengers. The National Air Traffic Controllers Association reportedly said that unpaid workers have had their constitutional rights violated in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington D.C. The union reportedly said in the lawsuit, "America wants its air traffic controllers to be laser-focused on landing planes safely and monitoring America’s runways, not distracted by financial issues and anxiety of financial instability."
