Proposed Law Would Kill Federal Employee Official Time by Attacking Retirement

Federal Workers, including IAM government employees and National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE-IAM) members need your help now to protect their rights to fair union representation.

Congress is targeting the very existence of federal employee unions.

House Republicans have proposed bills H.R. 1293 and H.R. 1364. Both are unnecessary attacks on federal employees who work on labor-management relations and represent federal employees. The laws would impose a penalty of reduced pension accrual on those who agree to serve as employee representatives.

Tell your representative to vote No on H.R. 1364 and H.R. 1293.

For more than 40 years, official time has been an important tool for management and workers to address workplace concerns. Current law explicitly prohibits union activities while on official time, including any internal union business, solicitation of new members, election of union officers and any partisan political issues.

The IAM and NFFE-IAM represent more than 100,000 federal workers. Tell your representative to vote no on these attacks on federal workers.
