Congress is considering a proposal that would eliminate your most basic rights on the job. This impacts every employee’s ability to defend against a wrongful suspension or termination.
Hi, My name is _________ and I’m a federal employee from (name of town). There is a proposed provision for inclusion in the National Defense Authorization Act that would take away my right to use the grievance and arbitration process to resolve wrongful suspensions and terminations. If that happens, my only choice would be to file a complaint with the Merit Systems Protection Board, which could take longer and cost taxpayers more money. This is nothing more than an effort to gut my rights as a federal worker. Please oppose including this harmful provision in the NDAA.
