I Want to Join the Day of Action on July 18!

On Tuesday, July 18, APWU is leading the charge along with tens of thousands of current and former federal employees in a Day of Action to call their representatives in Congress, to speak out against parts of the White House budget that hurts federal workers and retirees. The country-wide call-in’s success depends on you.

Fill out the form at the right to sign up. We'll send you a text or e-mail on Tuesday with the number to call so you can tell your Representative in Congress to vote NO on the White House budget.  

Together, our united voices CAN make a difference!

The White House budget is Robin Hood in reverse. It hurts postal employees by:

  • Calling for an increase of 6% employee pension contributions into FERS - 1% a year for each of the next six years, which amounts to pay-cut of thousands of dollars a year for each FERS postal employee.
  • Eliminating Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) on FERS retirement benefits , reducing COLA on current civil service retirees and a change in calculating future retirement benefits from the current "high three" average to a "high five" year formula.
  • Taking away the social security supplement for FERS employees who retire before they are eligible for Social Security benefits.
  • Calling for massive cuts to programs workers rely on, including to social security disability benefits, Medicaid coverage, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the student loan program.
  • Proposing $46 billion in “savings” to the Postal Service by a reduction in the methods of delivery. This could include cutting the number of delivery days and a further reduction in service standards.

Fill out the form at the right to receive an e-mail or text reminder to call on Tuesday.

Unite with us! Your livelihood may depend on it.
