AFGE supports the more than 100,000 USDA employees across the country who ensure the safety of our food supply, work to improve our health through dietary guidance and nutritional research, grant loans and assistance to farmers, and sustain our farmlands and grasslands to meet the needs of generations to come. Our union is committed to protecting the pay, benefits, and workplace rights you deserve.
With threats to the USDA like the Filthy Chicken Rule, there’s strength in numbers – together, we can fight dangerous budget cuts and save your jobs. Follow these simple instructions to join.
AFGE Council 45 supports the thousands of dedicated Food & Consumer Safety Inspectors working on the front lines of the meat, poultry, and egg products industries, usually under unsafe conditions, and safeguarding the American food supply.
