RAISE OR NO RAISE Let the powers know your thoughts

Please take 5 minutes to call your representative and both senators at 1-888-907-8362 today to urge them to support the 1.9% pay adjustment for federal workers in FY2019 and oppose any efforts to freeze our pay.

The 1.9% pay adjustment for federal workers is a step forward for working families. It would help us catch up to our private sector counterparts after years of pay freezes and shutdowns. We provide vital services to our communities and our country every day – we cannot afford another pay freeze.

Right now, the Senate has the pay adjustment included as part of its Financial Services Appropriations bill. The House version does not include this. That’s why we must call as soon as possible to make sure both versions include the catch-up pay that we have earned.

Please make sure you call 1-888-907-8362 three times.

The first time you call, please speak with your representative. After you’ve told your representative to support a pay adjustment and oppose a pay freeze, hang up, and call the number two more times to tell your senators the same.
