“Protecting American Agriculture Employees for Over 50 Years”

NAAE represents both professional and nonprofessional (non-clerical and non-managerial) employees in Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ), a unit in the US Department of Agriculture, Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service. PPQ’s activities include: certifying agriculture commodities for export, inspecting plant shipments entering the United States for agriculture pests, and managing control programs for exotic pests that have entered the United States.

As a small rank-and-file union with a much dispersed bargaining unit, we use our limited resources in obtaining our basic rights as federal employees.
