NWSEO also started a Facebook Community, called Protect the National Weather Service. We now have more than 46,500 “likes.” The page has become a forum for those who are interested in the work of the National Weather Service and the agency’s mission. There is a Resource section that includes sample letters to legislators in support of funding the NWS. Please take a look at this page and share it with your friends.
We encourage you to continue to write your legislators. Click here for sample letters along with contact information. This page also has a listing of some of the recent articles generated by NWSEO efforts. You will notice many of the articles include an interview NWSEO President Dan Sobien or one of our stewards.
Thanks to the diligent work of our stewards and members, we have been much more effective than any other federal sector labor union in fighting for funding for its parent agency. Yet, we are one of the smallest national unions in existence. This effort is stretching our resources very thin. Your membership is greatly appreciated. We could not do what we do without you. We hope you will encourage non-members in your office to join. We are the only organization whose entire existence is focused on making sure that you have employment and that your working conditions are the best they can be. NWSEO membership is the driving force behind our union and our strength
