Historical Note

Founded in 1917, the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) is one of the oldest unions in the United States to represent federal civil service employees. NFFE was originally chartered under the American Federation of Labor (AFL), but left it in December 1931. In 1999, NFFE affiliated with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, making them part of the AFL-CIO once again.

Józef J. Drozdowski served as NFFE's National Vice President from 1998, as well as Vice President of NFFE Region 9, and President of Local 2089 (East Tawas, Mich.). He was Forestry Technician at Huron-Manistee National Forests in Michigan.
