WASHINGTON – The American Federation of Government Employees today announced Julie Tippens as the union’s Director of the Legislative, Political, and Mobilization Departments.
Tippens joined AFGE in 2016 and has since served as the Retiree Program Director and the Deputy Legislative Director.
“Ms. Tippens has an extraordinary record of accomplishments at AFGE and throughout a distinguished career on Capitol Hill,” said AFGE National President Everett Kelley. “Our members are lucky to have such a talented, experienced, and effective advocate.”
Prior to joining AFGE, Tippens spent decades on Capitol Hill as an advocate and congressional staffer, serving as chief of staff to three different members, Executive Director of the House Democratic Caucus, and Financial Services Director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Most recently before joining AFGE, Ms. Tippens served as the Director of Strategic Partnerships and Grassroots at the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.
“AFGE is proud to promote Ms. Tippens to our top legislative position,” Kelley said. “She will continue to lead the fight for federal and D.C. government workers on a range of pressing legislative issues.”
