Chapter 282 President, Anthony W. Lee, JD  

Dear NTEU Chapter 282, 


I am writing to you today to share some important information about the upcoming primary elections scheduled for Tuesday, May 14, 2024.

Firstly, I would like to remind you that, as per a Presidential Executive Order issued by President Biden in 2022, all federal employees are entitled to request up to four (4) hours of administrative leave to vote in primary and general elections. See more details here: OPM Announces Paid Time Off for Federal Employees to Vote .


Secondly, I have had the privilege of engaging with the campaigns of several candidates who are running for office. These individuals, if elected, will have a significant impact on federal employees and the issues that we, as federal employees and union members, hold dear.


I would like to highlight two candidates in particular:

  1. Harry Dunn for Congress, who is running for Congress in Maryland’s 3rd congressional district.

  2. Angela Alsobrooks for Senate, who is running for United States Senator for the State of Maryland.


Both Dunn and Alsobrooks are committed to preserving our ability to work remotely (up to 100% telework), increasing federal pay and cost of living adjustments to bridge the gap with our private sector counterparts, protecting federal employee pensions from cuts during congressional budget talks, and safeguarding our union’s collective bargaining rights in the federal workplace.


As a chapter, we believe these candidates align with our interests and values, and we kindly ask for your support for them in the upcoming primary elections.


Please remember: Do not distribute this email to any government email address. This is in accordance with the Hatch Act, which prohibits certain political activities by federal employees.


Thank you for your time and consideration. Your vote matters!

In Solidarity,

Anthony Lee
