Coalition Writes letter to Congress Regarding Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

(Council 26)

The Federal-Postal Coalition, which AFSCME is a member of, wrote a letter to Congress on the "fiscal cliff" negotiations." It states:

 

"On behalf of the nearly five million federal and postal workers and annuitants represented by the national member organizations of the Federal-Postal Coalition, we respectfully urge you to oppose efforts to extract even more budget savings directly from federal workers and retirees in conjunction with negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff. More specifically, we urge you to contact congressional leaders involved in negotiations, as well as the President, to remind them that the federal workforce already has borne the burden of substantial budget savings over the past two years."
