AFGE Stewards are working people who have volunteered to connect members with their union. It is the Stewards’ responsibility to know how the union works on behalf of its members, aid members in their workplace, and show how AFGE’s mission impacts public servants.
Stewards are elected by their peers or appointed to the position by the local. Consult your local’s by-laws to find out how you can learn more about becoming a steward.
Stewards are critical to ensuring that AFGE members and all public servants are treated with dignity and respect at the worksite. AFGE Stewards build solidarity through personal relationships.
