Service + Solidarity Spotlight: AFGE Members March and Rally in Washington, D.C.

AFGE Rally

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Yesterday, hundreds of members of AFGE held a march in Washington, D.C., that ended with a rally at Capitol Hill. The action took place as the union of federal employees met for its annual legislative conference to spell out its priorities for the year—including pay increases, full rights and pay for Transportation Security Administration workers, and preventing the closure of Veterans Affairs hospitals, among others. With one voice, AFGE members said, “We are union! We fight for workers’ rights!”
