CREA is the organization that represents close to 500 employees at the Congressional Research Service, a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress. We have represented CRS workers since 1976 and have maintained one of the highest membership rates in the federal sector. Membership in CREA gives you the right to vote to decide who will be CREA’s officers, who represent us in formal negotiations. You also have the opportunity to provide input toward CREA’s positions and strategy. In sum, you can help your colleagues in ways that make sense given your circumstances and talents.
