Our members came together at the union’s 41st National Convention to elect our top three national officers.
AFGE discovered an error for the AFGE benefits telephone number on the temporary membership card offered to members through the AFGE website. The correct benefits line number is 888-844-AFGE (2343). The number has been corrected on the temporary online membership card.
Permanent membership cards sent through the mail do NOT contain an error. Only if you have printed a temporary card from the AFGE website, please discard it. You may reprint a temporary card or request a permanent card by going to www.afge.org, logging in, and visiting MyProfile. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Our union has faced life-threatening challenges before, but these threats are different. We have politicians in the White House, the House, and the Senate who are hell bent on wiping us out. We have never had our union contracts unilaterally annulled, our union volunteers kicked out of offices, our work fighting injustice severely restricted or denied. That’s why this national convention is extremely important. The stakes have never been higher – and that's why our 41st Triennial National Convention is so important.
With all the new anti-federal employee laws, pending bills, and Executive Orders, you may feel federal employees are the sole target of politicians. In reality, these politicians have been coming after all working people for decades.
