“Hello, my name is _____, and I’m a member of the American Federation of Government Employees from [Your City, State]. Please tell the Representative to vote NO on H.R. 1461. 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.”

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE … TELL THEM
Now is an important time to be an AFGE member, and we’re not alone in thinking so!
At the end of January, AFGE welcomed 1,138 new members to our union family. That puts us at 311,180 members, another record high!
With every new member at AFGE, our voice gets louder and we strengthen our position at the negotiating table – whether that table’s in Congress, at the White House, in our communities, or at the agency you work at.
“This is a continued testament to the growing strength of our movement,” said AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. “I am so grateful to each and every one of you for helping to grow AFGE and help our membership every day.”

Text “AFGE” to 225568 and start receiving text alerts to the attacks on federal government employees by Congress.
We’re just now out of the first week of January, and we’re already seeing attacks on federal workers rolling in at an unprecedented pace. If something isn’t done soon, working people may soon have little to no rights at work, no representation, and be open to losing their job at the whim of a politician.
Enough is enough, and we need to demand that Congress stop using federal employees as the easy target.
