Workers at the U.S. Army Human Resources Command in Ft. Knox, Ky., voted by a better than 3-to-1 margin to join AFGE. The more than 1,400 workers are Army civilian personnel specialists who provide human resources services to soldiers, veterans, retirees and Army families. They are part of the Army’s Human Resource Command.
AFGE President John Gage says:
Civilian employees in the Defense Department are vital to ensuring our military is ready to go into battle at a moment’s notice and treated with dignity and respect once they return. These HR employees are a critical link in this process and they deserve all of the workforce rights and protections that union membership provides.
