AFGE launches new local to cover federal employees in Europe

More than 10,000 federal employees working for U.S. agencies in Europe now have a union local to represent them. AFGEhttps://www.afge.org/publication/afge-launching-new-local-to-cover-federal-employees-in-europe/ announced the new at-large chapter - Local 14 - last Thursday; The new local was formed under AFGE District 14, which already represents small pockets of federal employees working in Europe. Most federal employees working in Europe are unrepresented, and this new local allows AFGE to extend service to those employees. "It's been a long time coming," said AFGE District 14 National Vice President Ottis Johnson Jr. "This is what the federal employees have been looking for and we are pleased to finally be able to restore some of the workers' rights protections for our Brothers and Sisters in Europe."[link removed] Read more here.
