“I am honored and humbled by the faith AFGE members have placed in me to continue the work I began three years ago, leading the nation’s largest union for federal and D.C. government employees,” Cox said. “Our membership has grown year over year for the past 24 years, and we are going to keep growing so we are big enough and strong enough to build the future that our dedicated members deserve.”
