What's New at AFGE 2157
10 Tickets for Members!

If you want to attend the VAEA Holiday Party, and you are a member in good standing, please contact us!  The General Membership voted to purchase 10 tickets to this event, which will be given to members on a first-come, first-served basis. These tickets were purchased by the Local at the will of the general membership to help our members out who want to go, but the cost being $29.00 per person, it is cost-prohibitive.

Eight of the ten tickets have been claimed!!!

Have a great time

Back in service
AFGE Local 2157, As some of you may have noticed, I have returned to the office after being gone for a very long time.  As many of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of last year.  I underwent multiple surgeries to prepare me for the journey that included 20 chemotherapy treatments, a double radical mastectomy, and 33 radiation treatments.

Obama Drops Chained CPI from 2015 Budget: The White House has dropped from its 2015 budget proposal the use of chained consumer price index to calculate cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) for Social Security and other federal programs, according to news reports. This is a major victory for AFGE and our labor and congressional allies who have fought against the switch for the past two years. Read More...

Every day, Government Employees come to work to honor solemn commitments they've made to support and defend the Constitution.  Prison workers, VA employees, Homeland Security, Social Security Administration and a varity of agency personnel keep the wheels of Democracy running.  Their's is a patriotic calling!  The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) exists to enable these workers to better serve and protect the American people - all of them!

A Union of people, AFGE strives to create a culture of collaboration between labor and management by serving as collective voice for the thousands of frontline workers that are dedicated to a life of service.  In addition to protecting employees, we also create a climate of greater quality and efficiency; beyond exposing fraud, waste and abuse, we also promote excellence in all facets of Government.

Success, for us, is attracting and retaining the best and the brightest to a life of public service.  We recognize that a Government workforce that is diverse, stable, educated, and resourceful can better serve the U.S. and all Americans.  By having committed and dedicated personnel-tried and tested-in these important tasks, all citizens benefit.
