AFGE Rewind 2017

Categories: The Insider

2017 was one of the toughest years to be a federal employee: a constant threat of a government shutdown, crippling budget cuts, and attacks on pensions and our voice at work. But AFGE members once again took on the challenges and made the impossible possible.  

As the year comes to an end, we’d like to celebrate our members who, against all odds, remain committed to serving the American people and never shy away from speaking up when their fellow countrymen’s lives are at risk, whether it be the veterans who suffer from VA understaffing or children who face health risks as the administration tries to end our country’s anti-pollution programs. Our members’ fighting spirit and courage inspire us to do everything we can to defend what we believe in and stand for.
