AUF - Aktionsgemeinschaft Unabhängiger und Freiheitlicher
The Aktionsgemeinschaft Unabhängiger und Freiheitlicher (Independents’ and Freedom Party Action Group, or AUF) sees itself as representing the interests of all public sector workers well-disposed to the Freedom Party – regardless of their particular party affiliation. AUF is an association and has its headquarters in Vienna. The association consists of full members, as well as supporting members and honorary members. However, only persons who are employed in the Austrian public service may become full members. Membership is acquired through admission and on the basis of a written application, or a declaration of membership. The AUF maintains its own provincial organisations in all Austrian provinces.
