Subject: Overtime vote could be next week. Act now!
July 18, 2003
WE'VE JUST LEARNED that the White House is blocking online
letters to President Bush on overtime pay and many other
issues. The New York Times quotes a national Web expert
today saying the White House actions are "probably designed
deliberately to cut down on their e-mail." This is a clear
sign that you're making a difference and the Bush administration
is trying to shut out criticism.
Now, while the White House is trying to turn down the
heat, we need to turn it up. More than 8 million workers
could lose their overtime pay in the coming months unless
these changes are stopped.
Here is how you can help:
During the next week as many people as possible need to
contact their U.S. senators and ask them to vote to block
the Bush overtime cuts. You can send a fax from an AFL-CIO
Web page by clicking on the link below.
After you take action, please e-mail your friends, family
and co-workers and ask them to get involved and help stop
these pay cuts. You can send a message to as many as 10
people at once by clicking on the link below.
The vote in the U.S. Senate could come as early as next
week. Please take the time to get involved.
Thanks for all that you do.
from your union, online activism and benefits.
