Take Action! Your Retirement and Job at Stake!!
Updated On: Oct 11, 2017

APWU members made 5,000 calls during our call-in Day of Action to fight the House Budget Proposal, but our fight is not over.

This Wednesday, Oct. 4, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on their 2018 Budget Proposal.

NOW IS THE TIME TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE. Let your Representative know that their constituents are deeply concerned.

CALL 1-844-402-1001 NOW. Tell your member of Congress to VOTE NO against any budget that includes attacks to postal and federal employee benefits, including retirement benefits, or undermines the public Postal Service itself!

As currently written, this budget will slash the pay and benefits of postal employees. It calls for:

  • Increasing employee pension contributions into FERS, amounting to a pay cut of thousands of dollars a year for each FERS postal employee.

  • Taking away the Social Security supplement for FERS employees who retire before they are eligible for Social Security benefits.

  • Outright eliminating pensions for new hires.

It also moves the Postal Service “on budget,” which could subject the USPS to federal government shutdowns as well as further restricting delivery and postal services.

If this disastrous budget is implemented, there is also concern that Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) on FERS retirement benefits could be eliminated and COLAs on current civil service retirees would be reduced, as previously proposed by the White House.  

Let Congress know that the Federal budget should not be balanced on the backs of working families!

As always, thank you for your activism!
