NTEU leadersWho We Are

Our union is comprised of a diverse group of individuals who share in common a commitment to public service. We proudly represent law enforcement officers, scientists, attorneys and cyber-security experts. Our members are revenue officers, food inspectors, bank examiners, park rangers and the list goes on. Each of these federal workers plays an important role in keeping the country running and prospering.

What We Do

NTEU is the voice of the federal workforce on Capitol Hill, in the courts, at the bargaining table and in the media. We fight for fair pay and benefits, improved working conditions and other issues that affect the working lives of federal employees.

We were created in 1938 to make sure federal employees are treated with respect and dignity. That remains our mission to this day and will continue to guide our work in the 21st Century and beyond.
