      Our disability specialists will be available the week of Sepetember 20-22 2016 in Cafe 2 and Cafe 4.  Disability enrollers will be on site each day.  We can also come to you, call our Disability Call Center to let someone know you are interested.  Please call 800-733-7236 ext.1000 or 1002 to ask questions or enroll over the phone.


         WE are getting noticed...

      Hi guys-- I got a call today from the WH Domestic Policy Council staffer to find out why OPM is being flooded with letters from irate TYAD employees.  They are using the public comment opportunity regarding the unification of Joint Base McGuire to ask why they're still having to deal with pay inequities.  I know we are very late in the game, but these letters have unnerved them.  So please encourage people to keep it up!
      See you next week-

      Take Action: 5.3% Catch-up

Do not use your government email address or government phone in contacting your Member of Congress.

      Everyday expenses are on the rise but your pay has not kept pace. You've paid your fair share and the proposed 1.6% pay increase for 2017 just won't cut it. That's why AFGE is leading the fight for a 5.3% catch-up wage adjustment.

      IMPORTANT: You may view this email using your home email on your personal computer, smart phone, or other electronic device when not on government property. BUT, this information should not be downloaded using government equipment, read during duty time, or sent to others using government equipment, because it involves taking an election related action and could be a violation of the Hatch Act.

      The 2016 presidential election is fast approaching, and no one will be impacted more by our nation's decision than government employees. The next president will be our boss for four years and hold enormous sway over our jobs, our pay, and our retirement. We must do everything we can to support the candidate who supports us.

      AFGE needs to make sure that whoever occupies the White House values our work and our agencies' mission to serve the public. We need someone with the spine to stand strong against the anti-government ideologues that want to shut down the government and eliminate our jobs.

      That's why AFGE is proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.

      “Secretary Clinton shares AFGE’s vision for a strong and vibrant government workforce that has the necessary tools and support needed to deliver vital programs and services to the American public,” said AFGE National President J. David Cox, Sr. “The American people count on government employees to keep their streets safe, deliver their Social Security checks on time, and care for our nation’s heroes at veterans’ hospitals, and AFGE can count on Hillary Clinton to help us get it done.”

      This is a huge decision for us to make, and we didn’t make it lightly. Click here to read about why we are endorsing Secretary Clinton, how AFGE’s endorsement process works, and more.

      In the coming months, AFGE will be fully involved in mobilizing support for Clinton and other pro-worker candidates prior to Election Day, and we all need to do our part to protect our livelihoods. We encourage you to join us in knocking on doors to get out the vote, phone-banking, and talking to your co-workers on why it’s important to support pro-worker candidates.

      Hillary Clinton will fight for you, but she will need you and all of us to have her back in this election. Stay tuned for more updates on what you can do to win the White House for working families.

      In solidarity,
