The American Federation of Government Employees´ National Secretary-Treasurer J. David Cox will receive the prestigious 2012 Yitzhak Rabin Public Service Award at a dinner in his honor on Wednesday, May 9, 2012.This award is presented by the American Friends of the Yitzhak Rabin Center (AFYRC) honoring those whose work reflects the legacy of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
"It has been a labor of love representing VA employees, federal employees, D.C. government employees and, of course, my union, the American Federation of Government Employees, for the past 26 years. The recognition of our union´s work to provide federal workers with job dignity, fair pay and adequate working conditions is an affirmation for AFGE that echoes Prime Minister Rabin´s belief in the labor movement," said AFGE National Secretary-Treasurer J.
