The Role of the Union
       Bringing democracy to the workplace.

   Unions provide employees with the right and
    opportunity to make their workplace better—
    from space changes to flexible work
    schedules.
   Unions are democratic organizations, where
    members can set the priorities and the
    agenda, and select their representatives from
    amongst themselves.
Safeguarding the public interest
      How public sector unions protect the
public interest

   In 1977, Congress passed the law leading to
    the recognition of the American Federation of
    Government Employees (AFGE), finding that
    public sector unions-
      Safeguard the public interest; and

      Contribute to the efficiency of public

       service.
                        5 U.S. Code Section 7101(a)
The importance of our members.
         Why all of us make the difference.

   Members are the key to meeting Congress’
    vision for public sector unions.

       Members propose solutions and pursue better
        work conditions, contributing to HUD’s efficiency.

       Members advocate within the agency and before
        Congress for the positive and fair implementation
        of HUD’s programs, safeguarding the public
        interest.
The importance of our members                        (cont.)

   Members have made all the difference—
       Bargaining for flextime, telework, credit hours,
        and more.
       Speaking with their members of Congress about
        the importance of comparable pay and decent
        health and retirement benefits.
       Working to resolve disputes and difficulties in their
        workplace, including challenging unlawful
        discrimination.
