Here's what you need to know about H.R. 136

Sunday,  April  30,  2017

-It eliminates the use of official time for union purposes.
-It revokes AFGE’s ability to stand up for workers who have been wrongfully fired, disciplined, harassed or intimidated
-It steals the pension of any federal worker who exceeds a limited amount of time spent representing employees who have been disciplined, harassed, or intimidated

Wait until you hear about H.R. 1259, the VA Anti-U

Sunday,  April  30,  2017

This bill takes away all grievance rights for workers facing a removal, demotion or suspension
It gives agency officials the power to take back compensation workers have already earned
The bill gives management the upper-hand by radically shortening the time unfairly fired VA workers can prepare their case

Please call 1-855-976-5397 and urge your Congressperson to oppose both H.R.1364 and H.R. 1259. Encourage them to focus on creating good jobs, not attack the basic rights of working people.

Today's Featured Biography


Robert Smith

Retired from Dayton Fire Dept. after 36 years and 3 months of service. What an amazing experience. I wouldn't have traded one minute of it. I already miss that great big DFD family I lived with every third day. The most talented and wonderful people on the planet. That time went by way too fast, so enjoy each other every day. Thanks for all the great memories.
