Tell Lawmakers to cosponsor H.R. 8687, the Saving the Civil Service Act

Congress outlawed the spoils system – where many federal jobs were given to political cronies – nearly 140 years ago and replaced it with the apolitical civil service we have today. President Trump issued a new executive order that is trying to return us to the spoils system, and we need to figh...

Were We Big Enough To Underpin AFGE is currently offering a buyout which will probably save them about $7,956,000 a year in salaries. The proposal is currently being offered to Local 2385, CWA, FNR, OPEIU (Local 2) and unrepresented AFGE staff. The layoff will affect 78 employees who have an average salary of $102,000 per annum. The offer is if you're within 3 years of qualifying for AFGE health insurance you'll receive a one time check of 25% of your gross salary to walk away. (I.e., if you need 20 years to qualify and you only have 17- the 3 years will be waived) The deadline to make a decision is May 15th, 2019. Anyone is eligible for the buyout in the above mentioned groups. The National Executive Council is not affected by the buyout at this time.

Dear Local 953, I hope that your Local is doing well! As you may have heard, I’m raising money to be the next National President of our Federation, and I could really use your help. I’ve already raised $8,361.00, but I’m trying to make it to $20,000 by August 15th, 2018. Even a small donation would help me reach my goal. I plan to use the money to canvass as many Locals and Councils that I can. I also need the money to mail out campaign literature, print brochures and flyers. Lastly, I need to pay for ground transportation, airline tickets and hotel stays when I travel more than 100 miles from Washington DC. You can make a donation on my crowdfunding campaign page by clicking here: https://www.gofundme.com/Eugene2018. Feel free to share my campaign on Facebook, Twitter and my Instagram pages too! Thank you in advance for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions about my campaign, my goal, or your concerns. Much love, Eugene Hudson Jr.
Seasons Greetings from Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Hudson Jr.
