HATCH Act Tip of the Month: Don't Post on Duty or in the Workplace
Federal employees MAY display a political party or current campaign logo or the photograph of a candidate in a partisan race as a profile picture on personal Facebook or Twitter accounts. However, they MAY NOT post, share, tweet, or retweet on those accounts while on duty or in the workplace, because the picture is partisan political activity even if the content of the post, share, tweet, or retweet is not political in nature. When in doubt, contact your National Legislative Committee member.
NATCAvists Build Relationships
NATCA members across the country meet with their members of Congress year-round. They educate them on NATCA and our professions, and build strong relationships at home and on Capitol Hill.
