Our members came together at the union’s 41st National Convention to elect our top three national officers.
Cherry trees. Crisp air. Majestic monuments. Amazing eateries. Washington, D.C. is the place to be in spring, and there’s no better excuse to be in the nation’s capital than to participate in the Public Service Charity 5K Run/Walk on May 7!
The Federal Employee Education & Assistance Fund (FEEA) is hosting its fifth 5K Run/Walk to celebrate and show support for federal public servants across the country. The 5K Walk/Run is a good opportunity for friends and family to come together for a fun, healthy activity and show their appreciation for our public servants.
Sounds good? Sign up here. Register before April 1 and save $10!
But if you can’t be in D.C. on May 7, fret not – you can sign up as a virtual or remote participant. Virtual/remote participants run or walk in their home community or city with a group of friends or other Public Service Charity 5K supporters in area parks or trails. So gather a group of friends and sign up! Wondering who else is participating in your area? Click here.
Click here if you want to be a volunteer captain who helps connect registered remote participants who would like to walk or run as a group in their local community on race day.
Regardless of whether you sweat it out in person or online, proceeds from the race will go back to federal employees in need through FEEA Feds Helping Feds charity. FEEA provides emergency loans, disaster relief grants, and scholarships to our dedicated civilian federal and postal public servants and their families.
Sign up now and see you in D.C.!
Our union has faced life-threatening challenges before, but these threats are different. We have politicians in the White House, the House, and the Senate who are hell bent on wiping us out. We have never had our union contracts unilaterally annulled, our union volunteers kicked out of offices, our work fighting injustice severely restricted or denied. That’s why this national convention is extremely important. The stakes have never been higher – and that's why our 41st Triennial National Convention is so important.
With all the new anti-federal employee laws, pending bills, and Executive Orders, you may feel federal employees are the sole target of politicians. In reality, these politicians have been coming after all working people for decades.
