AFGE Local 1923 was chartered as a labor organization in October 1959, representing approximately 30,000 employees nationwide that are employed in the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (formally HCFA), Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, and the National Mediation Board.

Local 1923 is the largest federal union in the country with over 8,000 members and continuing to grow. We have negotiated state of the art contracts, our officers have testified on many congressional hearings on behalf of federal employees, and successfully organized many new units under the Federal sector. Our officers and activists work extremely hard to ensure agency contracts are enforced properly and that all federal employees are treated fairly.

Hot Topics

AFGE Local 1923 will move full speed ahead to address these serious challenges currently facing the federal workforce:

  • Personnel Reform
  • Contracting Out
  • Pay Parity
  • Stripping Away of Bargaining Rights
  • Rising Health Insurance Premiums
