Time to Demand Respect

NTEU is launching a new, long-term campaign under the theme Respect that will encompass all efforts at battling the Executive Orders, seeking a fair pay raise, fighting off attacks to the retirement system, and demanding good faith bargaining during contract negotiations.

NTEU Respect

Today, NTEU is asking all union members, nonmembers and federal employees across the government to join our campaign for RESPECT for you and your work for our country.

What’s at stake are fair pay, the retirement you’ve been promised, benefits like AWS and telework, along with your ability to keep doing your job and to be treated with dignity at your workplace.

The president’s three executive orders are threatening to disrupt the landscape on all of these items and to minimize your union representation. These actions are on top of the administration’s proposed pay freeze and threats to decrease your retirement and other benefit programs, such as health care and leave.

No more. It is time to take a stand against the threats to your pay and benefits and the unrelenting rhetoric coming from too many elected leaders. Your thoughts and opinions matter. You have a voice, and together our voices are amplified.

Get involved by sending a message to the White House and Congress. Join us on Facebook and share our messages. Talk to coworkers and colleagues. Join in your Chapter’s efforts. NTEU has pulled together everything you need to be involved in one place: NTEU.org/Respect.

It is time to stop disparaging federal employees. It is time to say, “Enough.” It is time for some RESPECT.
