“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.

08.13.14 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 a friend request to the NAAE-PPQ profile, once friends, we can add you to our private page.  At that point you can unfriend us from the profile and still remain a member of the NAAE 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!
