Unions, Advocates to Hold Press Conference Calling on Joe Biden to Clean House at the Social Security Administration on Day One

Washington, DC – This Tuesday, Jan. 12th at 2pm ET, unions representing Social Security Administration (SSA) employees and advocates representing Social Security beneficiaries will hold a virtual press conference calling on Joe Biden to clean house by removing all of Donald Trump’s political appointees from SSA on day one of his presidency. The press conference will air live on the Social Security Works Facebook page.

Last month, members of AFGE Council 220, National Council of SSA Field Operations Locals, IFPTE Judicial Council 1, and the Association of Administrative Law Judges (JC1/AALJ) all overwhelmingly voted that they have no confidence in Social Security Administration Commissioner Andrew Saul and Deputy Commissioner David Black.

Under Saul and Black’s leadership, the Social Security Administration has waged a war on its own workforce, underpaid thousands of beneficiaries, and pursued policies that would make it more difficult to qualify for and remain on Social Security disability benefits. For these and many other reasons, the Biden Administration needs to remove Trump’s political appointees on day one

Who:

  • Ralph de Juliis, President of AFGE Council 220
  • The Honorable Melissa McIntosh, President of the Association of Administrative Law Judges
  • Matthew Biggs, Secretary-Treasurer of the International Federation of Professional & Technical Engineers
  • Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works

What:  Unions and advocates hold a press conference calling on Joe Biden to remove all of Donald Trump’s political appointees from the Social Security Administration on day one of his presidency. 

Where:  Livestreamed on the Social Security Works Facebook page

When: Tuesday, Jan. 12th at 2pm ET
