AFGE: Our Story is America’s Story
A brief history of our Union
Born in the depths of the Great Depression, AFGE formed in 1932 at one of the most uncertain periods in our nation’s history. Elected officials had crippled the civil service, wage cuts and furloughs were on the rise, and promotions and leave privileges were hard to come by. Back then, federal employees lacked many of the basic rights they enjoy today; like health insurance, overtime pay, and weekends without work.
When you join AFGE, your benefits go beyond the workplace, with programs and discounts that help you and your family save money on everything from health and education, to homeownership and travel.
