Who We Are
The Federal Workers Alliance (FWA) is a coalition of twenty-one labor unions, collectively representing more than 300,000 federal workers government wide. Our coalition is dedicated to fighting for the interests of federal workers and their families.
One of the major functions of the FWA will be to get federal sector unions on the same page when dealing with Congress and the Administration. We believe that when federal unions are able to speak with a united front, we all benefit from our collective voice being stronger and more authoritative. Our coordination allows us to stay on message and advance our agenda more effectively.
The twenty-two current members of the FWA are: the American Federation of Federal, State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME); the American Federation of Teachers (AFT); the Association of Civilian Technicians (ACT); the Federal Education Association/National Education Association (FEA/NEA); the Federation of Indian Service Employees (FISE); the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF); the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM); the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW); the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT); the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE); the International Organization of Masters, Mates and Pilots (IOMM&P); the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA); Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association (MEBA); the Metal Trades Department, AFL-CIO; the National Association of Government Employees (NAGE/SEIU); the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE); Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS); the Seafarers International Union; the Sheet Metal Workers International Association; the SPORT Air Traffic Controllers (SATCO); and the United Power Trades Organization (UPTO).
