March 8th AFGE Week In Review.

AFGE Action Network

Here is the bulletin board version of the March 8th AFGE Week In Review.

In this issue of Week in Review:

  • House Lawmakers Vote to Cancel 0.5% Raise for Federal Employees
  • 21,000 Petitions from AFGE Members Sent to House Speaker Boehner
  • Senators Urge Senate Appropriations Panel to Cap Taxpayer Subsidies for Contractor Compensation

The AFGE Week In Review gives members and their Locals an in depth and easy-to-read publication on issues affecting us and what our members are doing around the country. It’s a simple way to keep our members informed and educated on the issues. Equally important, AFGE Week in Review is approved by the General Counsel’s Office for bulletin board posting, to the extent that you are not prohibited by your contract or agency rules.

In Solidarity,

J. David Cox, Sr.
President, AFGE

Most Americans don’t understand how Sequestration will affect them. That’s why we’re recruiting your help to explain what Sequestration means, in simple English.
