Legislative Issues

NTEU has four Legislative Issues for 2019.  Chapter 97 supports these by sending letters, email and calls to our Congressional Representative to encourage them to vote for issues that are good for us, the federal workers.

The Legislative Issues for 2019 are:

  • Protecting Federal Workers’ Collective Bargaining Rights and Union Rights
  • Improving Federal Employee Pay
  • Preserving and Modernizing Employee Benefits and Retirement
  • Supporting Adequate Federal Agency Funding

Members can use the ACTION CENTER to send letters to our representatives.  You can use the prepared letter or write your own.

NTEU97’s Legislative Committee has a drawing many times during the year for those who send letters to our representatives.  NTEU encourages your to send the letters often, at minimum, once a month.  Take a screen print of the Thank You or forward the email you received to SendALetter@nteu-97.org and the Chapter 97 VP, Marcella Gutierrez, will put a ticket for you in the basket!
Keep your eyes out for the Send a Letter/Share A Letter flyers here on the website or in the Facebook Group.  (See below)
