Our next Union meeting will be held on 6/8/2020 at 4:30pm at staff house 6.  Refreshments and snacks will be provided.


We want to THANK all federal workers!  We want to show appreciation to all those that keep our government working!

We are needing your help again.  The administration is proposing to freeze our pay and make changes to our retirement benefits, which we were promised when we were hired!  Call your representatives and fight to keep our benefits and to stop freezing our pay!
