SSA employees rally at headquarters protesting chronic understaffing, underfunding

Social Security Administration (SSA) employees staged a [link removed] rally at the agency's headquarters to protest chronic understaffing, underfunding, and management's refusal to negotiate a fair contract with the union.

Meet the People Who Keep Our Federal and D.C. Governments Running

The AFGE Blog recently sat down with a group of federal and D.C. government workers represented by AFGE District 14 and asked them about their jobs, what people get wrong, what they wish people knew, and what they love most about their jobs. Here's the first in a series of reports featuring those local leaders.

Charron Carter: President-elect of AFGE Local 727, Charron Carter has been providing administrative support at the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) for almost 13 years. She initially joined the public service because she wanted more structure in her career than what she got from her previous private-sector job. CSOSA's mission is closely related to public safety, and Carter is proud to be a part of it. "At the end of the day, the work I do contributes to a larger purpose. Administrative support provides assistance to internal and external customers to achieve the mission of the agency." [link removed] Read more here.

"@32BJSEIU is supporting @tweetelissa. She has been endorsed by every single union that has endorsed. One rarely sees this level of consistency. It may be a first."
