Like many of you, I find myself very concerned about what the future holds for the federal workforce. Federal employees have been under attack for years. Unfortunately, these attacks have intensified under the current administration and Congress.
We have learned of efforts to abolish agencies, eliminate union representation, significantly cut agency funding, make it easier to fire federal employees, and cut retirement benefits.
However, NTEU has been through this before. Since 1938, NTEU has been a steadfast supporter of federal employees and has brought you many of the benefits you and your families have grown to rely upon: telework, alternate work schedules, strong contracts that protect your rights. NTEU gained many of these benefits through difficult political climates and during administrations that were not friendly to us. NTEU has done it before and NTEU will do it again with your help and support.
Membership and active participation in NTEU are critical. NTEU can only continue to successfully defend you and the work you do every day with the support of a strong membership. NTEU is standing up to the administration and Congress as they threaten your livelihood, rights, benefits, or working conditions. But, to continue to do this effectively we need your support through membership and active participation.
Please join NTEU Assistant Counsel and Chapter 254 Field Representative Doug Sanders in the San Antonio Conference Room on Friday, July 28, 2017, anytime from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Central, and learn more about what’s in store for federal employees and what you can do.
Doug will be happy to discuss your working conditions and answer any legal questions you might have.
