What is an AFGE Local Officer’s Role?
AFGE Local Officers are elected by the members of their local to a leadership position: President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer. Members entrust their local officers to manage the local union and to work together to provide direction for the local. Local leaders’ short-term and long-term planning enables the union to best serve their members, grow the local and maintain active membership, educate the bargaining unit on the union’s activities and accomplishments, interact with management, and create growth opportunities for stewards and activists. Local officers also work with other locals, their District, and AFGE National to strengthen and grow our movement.
