When you join the union, you have access to these AFGE benefits. These benefits are backed by the collective strength of over 10-million members of AFL-CIO unions. By using one or two of the programs, many members save as much as their annual dues.
These Money-Saving Benefits are Available Only to AFGE Members:
Could you be accused of: false allegations; misuse of government property; insubordination; refusal to cooperate; inflated expense report; creating a hostile work environment, retaliatory actions; telling a joke taken the wrong way?
Lawsuits against federal employees are increasing at an alarming rate. Most of us are unwilling to accept that we could somehow make a mistake or that our employer or a member of the public could turn against us. But in reality, all it takes is one complaint against management, one angry supervisor, one vindictive inmate, one failed assignment, or one jealous coworker, and both your job and your personal assets could be on the line.
Because of this a Professional Liability Insurance program has been developed exclusively for members in consultation with AFGE law enforcement representatives from the Veterans Administration, Bureau of Prisons and Homeland Security. Underwritten by an “A” rated insurance company, this insurance draws on the expertise of a large, experienced law firm to give members the legal representation they deserve.
Benefits include: $1million of insurance for judgments arising from acts or errors and omissions involving personal injury, bodily injury, or property damage while you are performing within the scope of your employment; $100,000 for defense costs arising out of administrative proceedings, and $10,000 for accidental death while on the job.
