NTEU Legislative Conference Begins Tomorrow

Hundreds of NTEU members from around the country and across federal agencies will be meeting in the nation’s capital to personally deliver an important message to lawmakers: support federal workers.

This is the theme of the annual, three-day NTEU Legislative Conference, set to begin tomorrow. The event features a rally at noon on Thursday on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, and meetings with representatives and senators on the union’s priority issues for the year. They include:

  • Ending sequestration and securing adequate agency funding.
  • An adequate federal pay raise for 2015 and highlighting the negative effect of the three-year pay freeze.
  • Protecting the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
  • Opposing efforts to increase employee contributions to their retirement and cutting benefits.
  • Lowering the federal contractor reimbursement cap and eliminating inefficient and unnecessary contracting.

Stay tuned to the NTEU e-Bulletin for news and photos from the conference.
