“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.

Update from the National President

07.07.14 NAAE has created its own Facebook page. It's a private page, unlike this website, and is members only.  If you are a member, please send your personal email address to Trish Claves, NAAE National Secretary at pimahorse@hotmail.com so that we can send you an invite to the page. If you don’t have a Facebook page let us know that too. We hope to reach everyone. If you’re already a member of the group you can send invites yourself to other members. Please pass the word!
