Rally on Capitol Hill Thursday to Protest Government Shutdown


NFFE, IAM, and other federal employee unions will be rallying on Capitol Hill tomorrow (Thursday, October 10, 2013) at 11 AM to demand an end to the government shutdown. NFFE-IAM members who can make the trip to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. are strongly encouraged to attend.

NFFE National President William R. Dougan will be speaking at the rally being organized by Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Here are the event details:

WHAT: A rally to demand an end to the federal government shutdown. 

WHEN: Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 11:00 AM 

WHERE: Upper Senate Park, U.S. Capitol, Washington, D.C. 

WHY: 800,000 federal workers have been forced off the job thanks to this partisan shutdown. Federal workers deserve a vote on the government funding bill already passed by the Senate that would lift the shutdown and put federal employees back to work.
