AFGE Membership Soars to Record High

Categories: The Insider

Now is an important time to be an AFGE member, and we're not alone in thinking so! At the end of July, AFGE welcomed 1,035 new members to our union family. That puts us at 305,345 members – a continued testament to the growing strength of our movement. 

With every new voice 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. 

“Every member has an important role to play in our union and in the future of our democracy. We are public servants on the rise and I couldn’t be more proud,” 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." 

How have we grown? By coworkers talking to each other. By standing up for the safety and well-being of our members. By taking on the issues, both well-known and unknown, that impact our members, their families, and all Americans.
