Become a Member

Join government workers nationwide and overseas as a member of the largest federal employee union that offers legal representation, legislative advocacy and other services.

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest and most influential federal and D.C. employees union in the United States. We’re growing stronger every day. In the last four years, we’ve added a net increase of some 20,000 new members. Combined with 18,000 retired members, our total membership is more than 300,000 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.

Become part of a community at your worksite and in your state. AFGE prides itself on being an organization that is built by members for members. By connecting with your union colleagues, you’ll know that you have a team working on your behalf at your agency.
