Time to Demand Respect

Respect Wide Banner

NTEU is asking all federal employees across the government to join our campaign for RESPECT for you and your work for our country.

What is at stake are fair pay, the retirement you’ve been promised, benefits like AWS and telework, along with your ability to keep doing your job and to be treated with dignity at your workplace.

The president’s three executive orders are threatening to disrupt the landscape on all of these items and to minimize your union representation. These actions are on top of the administration’s proposed pay freeze and threats to decrease your retirement and other benefit programs, such as health care and leave.

No more. It is time to take a stand against the threats to your pay and benefits and the unrelenting rhetoric coming from too many elected leaders. Your thoughts and opinions matter. Here are three ways to make your voice heard:

1. Send a message to the White House and Congress.

2.  Talk to coworkers and colleagues.

3. Join us on Facebook and share our messages. We've made it easy for you.

RESPECT. It means showing up an unbiased working environment to serve America every day. It means honoring the promise of a fair wage to provide for your families. It means the ability to retire without fear after years of dedicated service. And NTEU is fighting for it. Join us today—together, we can show Congress that federal employees more than matter, that we have a voice and will not stop using it until we gain respect. Join us here #NTEURespect


Enough is enough. Today, we will let the White House know how unacceptable and counterproductive the administration’s executive orders are. Today, we will raise our united voices to fight for our collective bargaining and due process rights and to ensue frontline voices are not lost at agencies. We are the Americans who work for America. We deserve RESPECT. #NTEURespect

If you believe in fair pay and the retirement you were promised. If you believe frontline federal employees’ voices deserve to still be heard, call and email your members of Congress and share this today. And don’t stop sharing and calling and emailing until Congress hears the message that federal employees matter. NTEU.org/RESPECT. #NTEURespect
