While public attention is focused on the Trump/GOP health care proposal, Congress is also moving fast to pass three bills that would take away the rights of working people in the federal government to have a collective voice on the job. These bills—H.R. 1259, H.R. 1364 and H.R. 1461—are “a blatant attempt to undermine the ability of federal employees to do their jobs effectively to best serve veterans and other taxpayers,” says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. calls it “The most blatant attack on federal union representatives that I have seen throughout all my years of representing federal workers.” Click here now to send an email to your representative opposing these attacks on federal employees (NOTE: Federal workers please be sure to do it on your own time, your own phone or computer and off government property). "Please take action," urges AFSCME Council 26 Executive Director Carl Goldman, whose locals represent local federal workers. "Our survival is at stake.”
