 Greetings members of AFGE Local 331, I cannot stress enough the importance of the need for your participation.  The attacks on federal employees are very real and coming at us in rapid speed.  We need to mobilize our members as quickly as possible, and we need as many people as possible to contact your representatives. We are providing you with phone scripts to assist you on what to say. We are extremely interested in calls to representative ANDREW P. HARRIS, (Republican), U.S. Representative, 1st Congressional District (Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Talbot, Dorchester, Wicomico, Worcester & Somerset counties; & parts of Anne Arundel, Baltimore & Harford counties), Maryland and Congressman Roscoe Bartlett

  • The Fight Back News has been approved by the General Counsel’s office for worksite distribution with the caveat that it cannot be reproduced or circulated on duty time, using government equipment or government resources.
  • The General Counsel’s Office has set no restrictions on the worksite distribution of the two flyers “Money Out of Your Pocket” and “Impact of An Extended Pay Freeze”.  These two flyers can also be posted on union bulletin boards.

 On Tuesday, February 14, AFGE members will be walking the halls of Congress with a simple message: we serve our country and we’ve sacrificed enough – it’s time to stop attacking our pay, pensions, and the services we provide.

But we can’t wait until Tuesday to start speaking out against the latest attacks on federal workers – CONTACT YOUR LAWMAKERS NOW.
