union_solidarityText “AFGE” to 225568 and start receiving text alerts to the attacks on federal government employees by Congress to cut their pay and benefits all why passing tax cuts to the top 1% and corporations. Federal employees have already contributed over $159 Billion in deficit reductions with reduced and frozen pay over the last 6 years.

Enough is enough, and we need to demand that Congress stop using federal employees as the easy target.

Call, write and visit your Congressional representative and tell them “Hell No” to any further cuts on our pay and benefits.
