AFGE will keep you connected on upcoming Legislative Agenda. 

Text “AFGE” to 225568 and start receiving text alerts to the attacks on federal government employees by Congress.

We’re just now out of the first week of January, and we’re already seeing attacks on federal workers rolling in at an unprecedented pace. If something isn’t done soon, working people may soon have little to no rights at work, no representation, and be open to losing their job at the whim of a politician. 

Enough is enough, and we need to demand that Congress stop using federal employees as the easy target. 

Sign up today and Stay Informed. 



January 3rd, 2017 | Posted by admin in Did you know? | New Address - (0 Comments)


There’s nothing worse than trying to reach out to one of your family members or friends, but realizing you don’t have their current email, phone, or mailing address. When it comes to our union family, having accurate contact information is just as important.
That’s why AFGE members voted at the 2015 National Convention to make January “Data Update Month.” And this year, when you update your profile with your contact information, you’ll be put in a drawing for AFGE swag – and maybe even a brand new TV. 
To kickoff 2017, we’re asking every member of the AFGE family to take a couple minutes to update their contact information so we can mobilize members and spring into action when the time comes.  
When you update your profile, you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a brand new AFGE coffee mug. Each week up to 5 names will be drawn and winners will be announced on Facebook. To keep up with weekly drawings and to see if you’re the lucky winner, follow AFGE on Facebook. 
The Deadline for updating your information is January 31st, so don’t delay. Need Help? Contact us at
