From members of Congress to fellow union members from other unions, government workers received an outpouring of support and appreciation during the Public Service Recognition Week that ran May 3-9.
During a national crisis such as the one we’re currently facing, the work of government employees has never been more important. Government workers are putting their lives on the line serving and protecting the American people from the coronavirus pandemic. And the American people recognized their contribution.
Here’s some public declarations of support and appreciation AFGE members received the past week on social media:
As the largest federal employee union in the country, AFGE is proud to represent our nation’s federal and D.C. government workforce. It’s hard to imagine the country without these brave, dedicated men and women who work hard, mostly behind the scenes, every single day to ensure our country’s safety and prosperity. Our members’ work saves lives, and we are here to make sure they have all the support and resources they need to do their jobs. Our members answered the call to serve, and we are proud to stand with them. For us, every week is Public Service Recognition Week.

Every day of the week, AFGE had a different activity to celebrate public service:
