UNION "YES"

 

Now is an important time to be an AFGE member, and we’re not alone in thinking so!   

At the end of January, AFGE welcomed 1,138 new members to our union family. That puts us at 311,180 members, another record high!    

With every new member at AFGE, our voice gets louder and we strengthen our position at the negotiating table – whether that table’s in Congress, at the White House, in our communities, or at the agency you work at.    

“This is a continued testament to the growing strength of our movement,” said AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. “I am so grateful to each and every one of you for helping to grow AFGE and help our membership every day.”     

Are you an AFGE member?    

If you’re not, join now. If you are already a member, ask your co-workers to join AFGE now

Labor Notes is a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979.

Through our magazine, website, books, conferences, and workshops, we promote organizing, aggressive strategies to fight concessions, alliances with workers’ centers, and unions that are run by their members.

Labor Notes Conferences just keep getting better. We couldn’t be more excited about what’s in store in 2016.

For a glimpse at the variety of troublemakers you’ll meet, check out our 2015 Year in Review and consider just a few of the inspiring stories of grassroots resistance we’ve recently highlighted:
* Auto workers and carhaulers organizing to vote down concessionary contracts.
* Farmworkers striking for $15 an hour.
* Verizon retirees blocking trucks to defend their health care.
* Chicago high school students winning back their school librarian’s job by walking out and sitting in
