AFGE Local 17 – which represents workers at the US Department of Veterans Affairs – is the 2013 Evening with Labor Organizing Award winner. Tickets for the March 15 event are still available: email Local 17 scored a phenomenal 102.67% increase in membership in 2013 and was recognized by AFGE’s National VA Council for having “helped make a very positive difference” within NVAC, which represents all 200,000 plus AFGE-represented employees at the VA. Local 17’s doubled membership is “a sign of strength that has not gone unnoticed by management,” says president Bill Preston.
