Who We Are

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest and most influential federal and D.C. employees union in the United States. And were growing stronger every day. In the last four years we have added a net increase of some 20,000 new members. Combined with 18,000 retired members, our total membership is nearly 220,000 strong. No other union represents close to that number of government employees.

AFGE is in the middle of every battle involving the well-being of federal and D.C. employees and their families. We lobby the White House, work in agencies, litigate in court and lobby in the halls of Congress. AFGE is all about producing results that positively affect our members lives.

Unions Can Say No to Non-members

"In a significant decision handed down by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, federal unions have no duty to represent non-members in statutory appeal procedures.

The federal court found the union did not have a duty to represent an inspector fired by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The discharged employee was a member of a certified bargaining unit, but not a member of the labor organization.

The court held that unions could refuse to represent non members in cases before the Merit System Protection Board (MSPB), (14-day and longer suspensions and removals), the Department of Labor (DoL), (Workers' Compensation), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), (discrimination), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), (classification), without violating federal law."

AFGE Local 1897 has to manage our funds and attorneys are very costly so our president may follow the above court ruling.
