There’s real strength in numbers. The many rights and benefits enjoyed by federal employees didn’t come easily. No one handed them to us, not Congress, not the White House, not any federal agency. NTEU members won them, at the bargaining table, through legislation, and by having a voice in the workplace where policies are implemented on a day-to-day basis.
NTEU can help you be successful in your workplace. Because management knows we speak for everyone in the bargaining unit, we can influence workplace rules in ways that make sense for employees and America’s taxpayers. We turn back legislative attempts that harm federal employees and advocate for policies and laws that support you and help you do your job more successfully.
We take on big picture issues like pay and the smaller stuff that gets under your skin at work. NTEU leads the way in fighting to retain and improve your pay and benefits, and our day-today workplace representation is second to none. No one does it better than NTEU.
With NTEU, your opinion matters. As a member, you have a vote in electing your chapter leaders; you can play an active role in your chapter’s affairs; and you ratify new contracts NTEU has bargained on your behalf.
You receive substantive information on what’s going on, both in your workplace and throughout the federal sector. There’s a print newsletter—the NTEU Bulletin—to put issues in context. For more immediate news, NTEU has an electronic e-Bulletin. There are also a number of specialized electronic publications and updates on such key issues as where bargaining stands. Additionally, Chapter 224 keeps you informed of the latest issues affecting the NTEU bargaining unit in ODAR. All of which makes for the most informed bargaining unit in the federal sector.
Joining is easy.
Simply follow the instructions on the Chapter NTEU 224 Cover Page to complete the 1187 form and send it to your chapter for processing. Monthly membership dues are a percentage of your salary, and are low, amounting to around $20 per pay period -- they are more than made up for in the savings you reap from the benefits we have secured for you, including savings in commuting and parking costs (and time), awards, savings in transportation subsidies, etc. Once you submit your membership forms, you will receive an email confirmation of receipt and in a few weeks, you will receive an NTEU membership card in the mail.
