If you are a dues-paying member of AFGE Local 17, you may have noticed an email on Friday, April 28th, entitled “TAKE ACTION NOW – Tell Congressional VA Committee Members to Help Restore the Integrity of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.” If you don’t see it, please check your spam folder. This is NOT a scam.
AFGE’s advocacy department has arranged it so you can easily send a pre-drafted letter to the House and Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs about the lack of leadership at the Board. Through the link, a member can click and send the letter to Congress in less than 60 seconds! Many of you have already used this system to send a message. We thank you for your courage and for taking a stand to improve work conditions at the Board of Veterans Appeals.
