the local afge steward is the key person in afge. while many members
may not personally know afge's national officers, or even their local
officers, chances are that most know their stewards (especially if they've
needed help) and see them on the job daily. because of the steward's high
visibility, the example he or she sets will, by and large, determine what
the local's members think of afge as a union. if the steward does a good
job of protecting members' rights, then the local's members will feel
secure with afge.
