NVP Anderson became a member of AFGE when he joined the Border Patrol. He got involved in the union by first becoming its secretary-treasurer in 2012, and serving as sergeant at arms, vice president, and president in the years that followed.
NVP Anderson has led AFGE efforts in many critical areas, such as representation, organizing, negotiations, legislative and political action, health and safety, and building partnerships with labor unions and leaders throughout the country.
As District 7 NVP, he wants to foster better communications throughout the district between the locals, leaders, and activists. His hope is that with greater communication throughout the district, more locals will work together to solve problems by sharing knowledge and expertise. He also wants to ensure all locals have quality representation, no matter the size.
“Collectively we’re stronger together,” he explained.
District 7 represents federal employees in Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
