Unions Mount Telephone Campaign Against Shutdown

The Maryland/District of Columbia AFL-CIO is joining the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) in calling on the president and the Congress to end the shutdown of the federal government. The unions are requesting that their members and the public call their congressional representatives at 1-888-775-3148 and tell them to “Stop the Lockout of Federal Employees.” The unions also are asking that people call the White House at 202-456-1111 and tell President Obama to “Stand firm—don’t’ negotiate away federal employees’ pay and benefits.” For more information on the telephone campaign, go to
