The American Federation of Government Employees is reminding its members to vote on Nov. 6 and also breaks down the issues affecting federal employees.
Noting that all 435 seats in the House and 35 seats in Senate seats “are up for grabs,” the union said the policy decisions “will shape the future of our country for years to come.”
AFGE said what’s at stake are threats to in Congress to privatize the federal government; a possible federal pay freeze in 2019; changes to retirement and other deferred compensation plans; and policies that aim to reduce federal employee union rights.
“Make your voice heard,” an AFGE statement reads, adding, “Nov. 6 is your chance to stand up to these anti-government, anti-union politicians and their policies that seek to harm working people.
The statement also includes a list of candidates by state that support federal employees and their unions.
