EPA employees are joining together to articulate a bold new vision for the agency through a 10-point EPA Workers’ Bill of Rights.
Strong families make America work. And nothing makes our union family stronger than open lines of communication. Stay close to your union family this year by ensuring the personal and non-government email, phone, and mailing address we have for you is correct.
When you update your profile anytime this January, you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a premium AFGE throw blanket. That’s a $40 value! Each week up to 5 names will be drawn and winners will be announced on Facebook. To keep up with weekly drawings and to see if you’re the lucky winner, follow AFGE on Facebook.
In 2015, AFGE members voted at the 2015 National Convention to make January “Data Update Month.” And this year, when you update your profile with your contact information, you'll be put in a drawing for AFGE swag – and maybe even a brand new TV.
Now that 2017 is in full swing, we're asking every member of the AFGE family to take a couple minutes to update their personal contact information so we can mobilize members and spring into action when the time comes.
The first AFGE Veteran of the Year awardee is Roslyn Austin-Stewart, an Air Force veteran, out of Local 2429 in District 12! An award ceremony will be held during the union’s legislative conference next month.
AFGE is urging Congress to pass a bill that would ensure that all federal employees have access to 12 weeks of paid parental leave before the new benefit takes effect Oct. 1 this year.
