AFGE Council 238
We are a nationwide union representing more than 7,500 EPA employees committed to protecting the environment and public health. And we’re fighting for the rights and resources needed to do our jobs.
EPA workers are under attack. EPA scientists and civil servants are facing government shutdowns, staffing cuts, and intimidation. We’re demanding a fair workplace that ensures we can protect the planet without interference or fear.

Over the course of several years, we won a new contract for thousands of EPA employees nationwide in June of 2020. This new contract protects our right to organize, includes language barring discrimination from our workplaces, requires PPE to be provided to employees, and more. But the fight continues as we use the contract to ensure a fair workplace for all EPA employees.
