Federal Workers Urged to Speak Out on Sequestration

NFFE/IAM National President William Dougan appeared on Washington DC-area television station WUSA 9 to discuss the negative impacts of sequestration and urge federal workers, on their non-work time, to contact Congress.

“Federal employees need to understand that they’re citizens just like every other citizen in this country, and they have the right to speak out and contact their congressmen on this issue, said Dougan. “Outside of work they have a basic right to make their concerns known to Congress.

“We can’t afford to sit on the sidelines for this one – this is too important, not only to federal workers but to all citizens of this country,” said Dougan. “If sequestration kicks in, most federal employees will be furloughed and services will be cut.”
