The American Federation of Government Employees, Local 1260, AFL-CIO began July 1, 2013. After breaking-off from a much larger local due to conflicts of size, AFGE Local 1234's Women's and Fair Practices Coordinator Victor Payes and Executive Vice President Bobby Orozco Jr. decided that it was time for a change. After having served on the Executive Board for Local 1234, which encompassed 40+ airports spanning three (3) states (AZ, CA, & HI), both Victor and Bobby realized the need for intimate and specific attention to their home airport of LAX and surrounding airports. As a result, the change was made from covering over 40 airports in three states to covering seven (7) airports in one state. The airports that are covered under the AFGE Local 1260 umbrella are: Bob Hope Airport (BUR)--Burbank; Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)--Los Angeles; Long Beach Airport (LGB)--Long Beach; Santa Barbara Municipal Airport (SBA)--Santa Barbara; San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP)--San Luis Obispo; Santa Maria Public Airport (SMX)--Santa Maria; and John Wayne Airport (SNA)--Santa Ana. AFGE Local 1260 is contained within District 12 (AZ, CA, HI, & NV) under the leadership of National Vice President George McCubbin III (former Border Patrol Agent and Border Patrol Council President). AFGE District 12 falls under the Federation (AFGE National) and answers directly to current National Vice President of Women's and Fair Practices Augusta Thomas, National Secretary-Treasurer Eugene Hudson, and National President J. David Cox. AFGE Local 1260 currently has over 1,250 dues-paying members.
