NFFE Weekly Roundup

May 12, 2017

The National Federation of Federal Employees celebrated after a successful legislative week which took place May 8-11 in Washington, D.C. NFFE members charged up Capitol Hill alongside their sisters and brothers from IAM locals to fight for the labor movement and the future of federal employees.

  • Action Alert: H.R. 1461

May 12, 2017

NFFE is calling on all members to contact their House Representatives to vote "NO" on the deceptively titled, "Veterans, Employees, and Taxpayers Protection Act of 2017" (H.R. 1461), introduced by Representative Jodey Arrington   (R-TX). This legislation does not help veterans nor taxpayers, and serves only as an attempt to weaken federal employee unions.

Some NFFE members are receiving calls from local and national media reporters requesting information and perspectives from union members regarding federal official time. Many of these inquiries are devised by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, a known conservative media outlet for anti-labor forces that seek to spread misrepresentations on the use, benefits and cost of official time. 

If you are contacted by the media regarding official time and are unsure if you should speak with them, contact NFFE Executive Director Steve Lenkart at (202) 216-4458 or slenkart@nffe.org

The National Federation of Federal Employees would like to thank all of the nurses throughout the United States for their dedication and hard work, especially during National Nurses Week.
 
Across the country, more than 100,000 federal nurses care for our nation’s veterans, active military, and our diverse native populations. It is NFFE’s great privilege to represent several thousands of those dedicated caregivers who work at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Department of Defense (DoD), and Indian Health Service (IHS).
