AFGE continues to work with the Obama administration and our friends–both new and old–in the 111th Congress:
For the restoration of the civil service protections and collective bargaining rights of federal employees who work in the Department of Defense and the Transportation Security Administration–and against any new and continuing attempts by radical conservatives to dismantle the civil service system.
For the proper funding and staffing of federal government agencies–and against any new and continuing attempts by radical conservatives to strangle those agencies under the guise of fiscal prudence.
For legislation to increase federal employee pay, lower federal employee health insurance premiums, and protect federal employee retirement benefits–and against any new and continuing attempts by radical conservatives to slash federal employee pay and benefits.
This is a crucial moment for federal and D.C. government employees. AFGE encourages its activists to take advantage of opportunities to promote federal employee interests in the 111th Congress. We also encourage you to mobilize members to participate in legislative and grassroots political activities. We must educate our elected officials about the value of our work and the importance of our workplace rights.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, please feel free to contact our Legislative and Political Action Department at (202) 639-6413.
