AFGE Local 559 is now at 5454 Hoffner Ave Suite 105, Orlando FL 32812.
Our AFGE Local 559 Representing employees from Orlando VA Medical Center and FCCPAC found in April 2010. We have grown from 300 to over 2400 in just a little over 10 years. You are joining over 300,000 other government workers who help ensure that all Federal employees are treated fairly and with dignity. AFGE exists to help us do just that.
We’re all very proud of our record at Local 559. We’re a union that has always encouraged its members to get involved: To join committees, vote on contracts, participate in workplace actions and grassroots political actions, and speak out on workplace issues. As Local 559 President, I also encourage you to attend union meetings, participate in local elections and learn more about AFGE and the ways you can benefit by being a member.
AFGE is only as strong as our members. The more members become actively involved, the stronger we will be and the more we will be able to accomplish in bargaining and in influencing Congress and the Executive Branch to improve our pay and benefits.
