AFGE: Stop The Government Lockout

From the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE): http://www.afge.org/

The House of Representatives has shut down the federal government. There is one action we need every AFGE member to take right now: Call your Representative.

Call your Representatives at 1-888-775-3148. We’d tell you to call the Senate, but they’re not the problem. We’d tell you to call the White House, but they are not the problem. Both the White House and Senate want to pass a clean spending bill to fund the government. The House of Representatives is the problem.

The House needs to feel the whiplash of their actions, TODAY. We need to put pressure on them like never before. Call them right now at 1-888-775-3148 and demand that they pass a clean spending bill, and stop holding federal employees hostage.

These calls are going to be the most effective way to get your lawmakers’ attention. Keep their phones ringing off the hook. Pick a time when your friends and family are free, and take turns making the calls. Pick a set time to call your lawmakers every day, and keep calling until the Government Lockout has ended. A call takes five minutes. Your job is worth five minutes a day.

Together, we make a difference. So pick up your phone and start calling 1-888-775-3148. And don’t stop calling until the Government Lockout has ended.


In Solidarity,

J. David Cox, Sr.
President, AFGE
