Welcome to the AFGE Local 2725 website!

We are all very excited about better communicating with you, our members. There are many issues facing DCHA, DOEE/OSSE, DHCD, DCRA, and DC HEALTH employees and this website will let the Union leadership keep you informed and updated on what’s happening here at AFGE Local 2725 and throughout all of the agencies we support.

We hope this website can be a resource to help promote worker education and training, share knowledge of emerging issues, inform all of the benefits of union membership, and communicate upcoming events. Unions have always been there for workers to safeguard their rights. Unions protect wages, ensure safe working conditions, and foster equity between management and workers. As your local president, along with our local's officers and shop stewards, we will continue to exemplify what it is to be a union and defend your rights.

As president of the local, Gilliam said his local’s approach to advocating for members rests in a quote by British statesman Lord Milner, “If we believe a thing to be bad, and if we have a right to prevent it, it is our duty to try to prevent it and damn the consequences.”

The local is also the home local to our very own National Secretary-Treasurer Eric Bunn, who is the first D.C. government member to hold a national office.

“Join me in welcoming Local President Countee Gilliam and the rest of AFGE Local 2725’s executive board to AFGE,” said District 14 NVP Ottis Johnson, Jr. “I look forward to working with them over the next few years.”
