Important Message Via IAM Government Employees Director Price

Category : Uncategorized

CONGRESS_CALL_TODAYInside the Sinister Attack on Federal ‘Official Time’ Two bills (H.R. 1293 and H.R. 1364) charging through Congress would greatly hamper federal employees’ right to fair union representation. The “Official Time Reform Act” (H.R. 1364) would stop pension accrual for time spent representing fellow federal employees on the job, also called “official time.”

 

Call the Capitol at 202-224-3121 and ask to speak to your Representative. Tell them that H.R. 1364 and H.R. 1293 are unnecessary and cruel attacks on federal workers.

 

 Send an email telling your Representative to vote No on H.R. 1364 and 1293.

Bad News “Official Time Reform Act”

Category : Uncategorized

Stop Congress from Attacking Federal ‘Official Time

House Republicans are attempting to force unnecessary changes to the law and undercut federal employees’ rights in the workplace. For more than 40 years, official time has been an important tool for management and workers to address workplace concerns. Current law explicitly prohibits union activities while on official time, including any internal union business, solicitation of new members, election of union officers and any partisan political issues.

IAM government employees and National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE-IAM) members currently use official time across the country, as prescribed by specific departments and agencies. Qualifying activity is restricted to government business and is regulated by management, which decides how much official time is reasonable, necessary and valuable to their operations.

No federal employee management or executive organizations support any further restriction on Official Time use.

SAY NO!!! TO (H.R. 1364)

International Women’s Day

Women's Day 2017...Wednesday, March 8
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

We_Can_Do_It!

International Women’s Day on Wednesday will be the start of something BIG for working people in North Carolina, and you can help make sure the world hears about it.

Nearly ⅔ of minimum wage workers in North Carolina are women, who, because of inflation, actually get paid less today than they did in 1968. Such poverty pay denies women their full freedom, and that holds all of us back.

That’s why Sen. Angela Bryant and Rep. Susan Fisher have chosen this Wednesday to join the growing Raising Wages NC coalition in announcing the introduction of their bill to raise the wage in North Carolina to $15 an hour in 5 years.

How can we amplify the news of our #15in5 campaign so reporters and the public will hear it above the noise on social media?

By mass-sharing a single message all together, all at once! 
It’s called a thunderclap, and you can add your support here. 

Forward Together,

Jeremy

Jeremy Sprinkle, Communications Director

If you’re ready to get LOUD for raising wages,

Martinez Tells North American Companies to Bring Jobs Home “We believe that the time is long overdue for policy makers to stand up to corporations who are all too willing to move jobs to Mexico, China or anywhere else in the world to take advantage of workers who do not enjoy fundamental human rights—like the right to form a union,”

WHAT IS NAFTA?

The North American Free Trade Agreement was negotiated behind closed doors with hundreds of corporate advisors. Its key provisions promote job offshoring and empower corporations to sue the U.S. government before three corporate lawyers to obtain uncapped sums of money from taxpayers for domestic environmental and other policies the corporations oppose.

This deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada was used as the model for the TPP, a deal widespread public opposition derailed last year. For this and other pressing issues MachinistsUnionNEWSFEED
