The AFGE NOW Recruitment Power Pack includes everything you need to hold a virtual recruitment event, including materials to help your planning, outreach, presentation, scripts, and sign-up process.
These resources have been created in a “plug-and-play” format. When new recruitment presentations are rolled out, you can just add the new content to your events along with the rest of these tools we are providing you now.
There has never been an easier time to get potential members to join AFGE! With our slew of victories, government employees are ready to join their union. But we still have to ask them! So how do you get started asking as many potential members to join as possible? Let our experts in the AFGE Organizing Department help. Go to afge.org/OrganizeNOW and fill out the contact form, then an AFGE organizer will be in touch soon!
At the national level, we’ve adopted a two-track organizing system called AFGE NOW.
First, we’ve got to take advantage of the opportunities available to us NOW. At the local level, that means finding ways to ask as many bargaining unit members as possible to join your AFGE local through virtual or in-person events ASAP by highlighting our victories and showing that momentum is on our side. We’ve put together all the materials you need to successfully do just that, which are available on our website at afge.org/NOW.
There has never been a better time to join AFGE and become part of a union making real change, winning victories that will make a difference in the everyday lives of government workers. All we have to do is make the ask.
Second, we’ve got to Organize for Power. At the local level, that means thinking through the issues that matter to you and the people you represent. What common issues unite your workforce? Maybe a bad supervisor, a buggy computer system, or a confusing workplace rule – but it could be anything. How can you persuade the people you represent to unite around a common understanding of that issue? Once they are united around a shared understanding, is your local union able to articulate a potential solution and mobilize your members to take action to make your solution a reality? That’s power.
