Employees of the Treasury Department downed tools on Wednesday morning over health concerns.
Reports are that the staffers have complained about air quality issues at the building over the past two years, and nothing was ever done to rectify the situation.
As a result of this issue, several of them are now ill.
The employees were represented at a meeting held today between their union, Civil Service Association (CSA) and government officials.
The outcome of that meeting is unknown at this time.
However, the Treasury Department remains closed.
