When our members agreed at our 2015 National convention that more training and education was a priority for this union, we knew it would only make us stronger. Now, we are proud to introduce new ways to access information and connect with one another:
It’s a one-stop shop for training at AFGE. Any member – including local officers and stewards – will be able to log in to the online portal using their MyAFGE user ID and password. From there, you can access:
Handbooks and manuals
Get what you need to represent our members effectively, online and at your own pace!
We've created a short online module series that takes you through what you need to know about being a steward.

You are the voice of the workers and we are counting on you to make AFGE Big Enough to Win!
