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.

Our members’ fighting spirit and courage inspire us to do everything we can to defend what we believe in and stand for.
