A podcast for federal employees who are FedUp with non-compliance and an unjust system. FedUp with being constantly mistreated, misinformed, and misrepresented. Hosted by a retired federal employee himself, who has been through it all, and who has helped many federal employees across this country, this podcast will talk about a wide range of common issues all federal employees continually face, in addition to giving federal employees a platform for their voices to be heard, and to share their stories and issues. Knowledge is power, and FedUp with Ron Speakman believes that all our stories need to be heard by all.
Creator and host, Ron Speakman (previously a city letter carrier for the USPS and now as a retired federal employee), has seen or been through it all, especially after he was injured on the job. As he was learning and fighting for justice from the mistreatment, misrepresentation, and misinformation of the agency and management, his own union, and even coworkers, he started helping us, his federal brothers and sisters from all over the country with their issues regarding their own on the job injuries. He knew just how lonely the journey could be, and he didn’t want anyone else experiencing what he had to endure. After a few years of helping others, he realized helping his brothers and sisters was his true calling, and that is why he created FedUp, a podcast that serves as a voice for those who are lost and struggling with their own fight. Ron assists those in need and provides a platform to share stories when no one else is listening. He is a true champion for the rights of government employees especially those who have been injured on the job and whose management personnel refuse to honor their duty to assist!!

Are you a federal employee going through a situation that has been constantly swept under the rug? Are you dealing with constant mistreatment from management, your union, or your agency? Do you feel stuck with nowhere to turn, and feel like no one is listening or helping you? Then FedUp is the podcast for you. We welcome you to share your stories, frustrations, and issues that make you, and why you are FedUp, in addition to listening to other people’s stories who are going through it just like you. Let your voice be heard, and remember, you are not alone!

Please include your name, federal agency for which you work, your craft and position within that agency, a brief description of what issue(s) you would like to discuss (OWCP, union, management, agency, etc.), and any phone number you want us to call if you prefer, and we will reach out to you as soon as possible. As always, stay safe out there my friends.
FedUp with Ron Speakman had Corey on the show for Episode 20. Go check it out, Corey was doing his thing and Ron was right there with him sticking his finger in management’s eyes. Make sure you download and listen to his podcast each week; he is an OWCP guru and is willing to help all our brothers and sisters out when they run into the idiocy management always seems to try and throw at us. Ron will be at the convention this year. Let’s show him some love and buy a shirt or two. How awesome would it be if everyone wore a From A to Arbitration shirt one day then wore a FedUp shirt the next day at the convention? What message would that send to our wayward national officers? Let’s make sure they hear the message loud and clear by banding together and throwing up our flags via our shirts at the convention!!!
Build a Fighting NALC – Hosted by Tyler Vasseur
NEXT MEETING: Sunday, March 10 at 12 pm CT (10 am PT, 1 pm ET) REGISTER HERE: ZOOM REGISTRATION
The last Building a Fighting NALC, member Zoom meeting, held on January 28, 2024, drew 104 NALC members from across the country who discussed how to pass the Open Bargaining resolution and transform our union!
NALC members from across the country are Fed Up with a lack of transparency during contract negotiations. All our members are facing rising inflation, an overall cost of living crisis, a continued staffing crisis, and daily attacks from management on the workroom floor. We need to get organized to Build a Fighting NALC.
Our next Build a Fighting NALC: Fight DeJoy’s 10-Year Plan and Postal Consolidation, member Zoom organizing call will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at: 10 am PT, 11 am MT, 12 Noon CT, and 1 pm ET. Everyone can register for the Zoom meeting HERE.
We plan on meeting roughly once per month to get organized and prepare for the NALC National convention in August. Please share the registration link with any NALC members or supporters who would be interested in joining us.
