As a citizen of the United States of America, you have the right to seek help from your elected representatives in addressing your concerns -- including policies that affect your conditions of employment as a federal employee. You may contact your Congressional representatives on

such matters as long as you are on your own time, use your personal phone/computer, and

make it clear you are contacting them as a citizen and not speaking on behalf of the agency.
