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. It's the foundation for much of the work you'll be doing as a problem solver, an organizer, and an activist.
