Tell Your Lawmakers to Oppose Budget Cuts:

President Trump's Proposed Budget Would:

  • Increase current workers' out-of-pocket payments toward their pensions to 7 percent over six years.
  • Reduce pension benefits for future retirees by averaging their highest five years of salary, instead of their high three.
  • Eliminate annual cost-of-living adjustments for current and future retirees.
  • Eliminate supplemental payments to employees who retire before age 62, like law enforcement & firefighters.

Organize Around the Proposed Budget Cuts!

You can use the materials below (while you are not on duty time) to educate your brothers and sisters on what is being proposed. You can also use these materials to ask your coworkers who are not AFGE members to join AFGE and join in the fight to stop these cuts.

This bill does nothing to improve government. It is simply an attack my rights at work and my ability to provide quality service for the people I'm proud to serve. Thank you."
