Dear AFGE Member,

As you know, in 2015 the Office of Personnel Management announced that it was the target of a data breach that compromised the confidential personnel files of millions of federal employees. AFGE has retained Daniel Girard of Girard Gibbs LLP to represent AFGE in a lawsuit related to that data breach. Mr. Girard was recently appointed by the presiding court to lead consolidated proceedings on behalf of government employees.

Girard Gibbs LLP has prepared a short survey to assist with the prosecution of this case. Your contribution to this confidential survey will help the attorneys with their investigation. Please do not provide sensitive personal information (e.g., Social Security number) in your responses to any of the questions in the survey. Please also keep this survey confidential and do not share the survey, or your responses, with any other person.

We would appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey, which is available at:

Thank you for your time and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey or the case, please contact Girard Gibbs LLP at

In solidarity,
