(WASHINGTON, D.C.)—AFGE officially launched www.DHSworkers.org today to provide federal workers with unbiased news and information relating to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
“DHSworkers.org provides vital alternative news and information regarding the development and implementation of DHS from a worker’s perspective,” said AFGE National President Bobby L. Harnage. “The Administration has provided a great deal of rhetoric about DHS and not enough information and answers.”
DHSworkers.org will conduct regular surveys of DHS employees on a variety of workplace issues relating to pay, classification, adverse action and performance evaluation systems.
In addition to answering important questions about representational rights of DHS workers, the user-friendly Web site will provide DHS workers with the opportunity to receive weekly news updates.
“What does the future hold for DHS workers after the 12-month transition period ends?” asked Harnage. “Check out DHSworkers.org, today.”
AFGE is the largest federal employees union in the United States, representing 600,000 federal and D.C. workers.
The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union, representing 700,000 workers in the federal government and the government of the District of Columbia.
