#RedforFeds- AFGE National Rally
by AFGE National RPB AFGE Local 12

Raising Our Voices In Court, In the Streets

On #RedforFeds Day, July 25, our union and members across the country are taking the administration to court and will be in the streets to protest his union-busting, democracy-busting executive orders.  

We will be hosting a rally in front of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia where our attorneys will be making oral arguments that afternoon. We’re expecting hundreds of public servants at the event wearing red protesting the administration’s attempt to silence workers and remove our rights.  

  • If you cannot make it to D.C. on July 25, we’re asking you to host an event back home.  
  • But wherever you are, please wear red or a red item to show solidarity with your union brothers and sisters and take a picture to share on social media with the hashtag #RedForFeds.  
  • You can RSVP for our Day of Action rally in Washington, D.C. here
  • Share this flyer and encourage your coworkers and friends to join us in Washington, D.C.  

For more resources and to see which cities are hosting events and participating in #RedforFeds, visit www.afge.org/redforfeds and follow the #RedforFeds hashtag on Twitter.  

Members of Congress are also joining the fight on #RedforFeds Day. In the House and Senate, there will be a special order and morning business session where legislators will be offered the opportunity to speak out against the harmful orders and need for an apolitical civil service system. 

Why #RedforFeds 

On May 25, the administration issued three executive orders that chip away at due process and collective bargaining rights for federal employees and impede employee representation at the job site.  

Three days later, AFGE filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. That suit has since been joined with several other unions, an amicus brief from Congressional leaders protesting the president’s decision, as well as support from lawmakers speaking out.

These executive orders are a direct assault on our apolitical civil service system and are nothing but thinly veiled attempts at busting unions and rolling back workplace rights across the country. 

Our union is thankful that so many elected officials have seen right through these orders for what they are, and appreciate them standing up to the administration to try and stop them.
