Historical Note

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union representing federal and D.C. government workers nationwide and overseas. AFGE's motto was established as "To Do For All That Which No One Can Do For Oneself". The AFGE is a federation of approximately 1,100 locals divided into 12 geographical districts. Each local maintains autonomy through operating under local constitutions that comply with the AFGE National constitution, originally ratified during its founding in 1932. Federal employees' right to organize and bargain binding labor contracts was established in law by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, which AFGE helped to draft, and which states that collective bargaining in the federal sector is in the public interest while also barring the right to strike.
