In 2015 we grew our union, built our bargaining and political power, and sent a strong message of unity. We welcomed our 300,000th member, organized new units, negotiated hard-won contracts and stood with other unions against incredible obstacles. All of your hard work in 2015 is setting the stage for a more promising 2016 for AFGE members and their families.
