NFFE Releases New Vision for Recruiting in Updated Membership Building Strategic Plan


After months in the making, NFFE is proud to announce the latest update to our Union’s Membership Building Strategic Plan (MBSP). You can read the plan here.

Laying out a bold vision for NFFE’s recruiting operations, the MBSP brings together years of expertise into one document. The plan emphasizes recruitment incentives, rewarding top performers, engaging communities of interest, and giving Locals the resources they need for recruiting success, among others.

Here are a few highlights from the plan:

$100 Recruitment Incentive Renewed:

The $100 recruitment incentive is back for another year, meaning your Local is still eligible to receive $100 for every new member recruited. Simply submit the completed 1187 to the National Office along with an up-to-date bargaining unit list and your Local will be credited $100 for each new member. See the plan for details.

Seed Money Program to Finance Local Recruitment:

Want to hold a recruiting drive but don’t have the funds to do it? Now Locals can request assistance up front from the National Office to help pay for recruitment expenses. To apply, simply download the grant form from the Organizer’s Toolkit on the NFFE website, fill it out and submit it to your National Organizing Coordinator.

Improved Awards System for Top Performers:

You deserve to be recognized for your recruiting success. That’s why we’ve completely re-vamped our awards system to recognize recruiting excellence at Locals of all sizes, locations and means. You can win monthly, annual, and ongoing awards ranging from free trips to D.C. to visits from NFFE’s National President.

This is just the start. Learn more about the new strategic plan by visiting the Organizer’s Toolkit at, or click the image below.
