Cory Bythrow is the Deputy Chief of Staff of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the nation’s largest federal employee union representing 670,000 federal employees in 1,110 local chapters across the U.S. and abroad.

Bythrow has spent a decade advocating for government workers who make the American Dream possible each and every day. The son of a union fireman, he believes that our country is at its best when public servants are afforded the resources and respect they deserve for keeping our nation healthy, prosperous, and secure.

Prior to his current role, Bythrow served as AFGE’s National Communications Director following many years in the same position at the National Federation of Federal Employees. He holds a Masters of Business Administration and Masters in Government from Johns Hopkins University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.

He is a proud native of Quincy, Massachusetts, birthplace to two U.S. Presidents and his beloved Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant chain.
