NFFE - Forest Service Council - Legislative Action

 


 

How Your Local Can Get Involved

First, study the Legislative Training Powerpoint. Next, have your Local appoint a Legislative Liaison with duties as described in the powerpoint. Send the name and contact information for your Legislative Liaison to the Chair of the Council Legislative Committee.

The Hatch Act has nothing to do with issue advocacy – see Hatch Act information and links.  For information on your rights and responsibilities, how to contact your Congressional representatives, and more, check out NFFE's Legislative Action Center.

 


 

FSC Legislative Priority:  Broken Promises - Injured firefighters, law enforcement officers forced out of their retirement system

Congress enacted 5 U.S. Code (U.S.C.) 8336.6(c) retirement benefits due to the hazardous nature of the occupation.  During the FSC's time on the Hill in May, NFFE FSC representatives will be asking Congress to redeem the commitment made to these employees by maintaining the enhanced retirement for injured or disabled federal firefighters and law enforcement officers who continue working for the government.  

 


 

Temporary Employment Reform

The Land Management Workforce Flexibility Act was passed in August, 2015.    For more information, check out our Temporary Employment Reform page.

 


 

Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee keeps the Executive Board, and Local Lodges as appropriate, appraised of proposed legislative actions that affect government employees. The Committee also works with Forest Service Council representatives at IAMAW Legislative Conference to ensure that the interests of the Forest Service bargaining unit employees are effectively compiled and communicated.

Please contact the Legislative Committee Chairperson if you have any comments or questions.
