Take Action

Stand together to shape the future of Florida

From exercising our voice at work to improve the lives of our coworkers to advocating on behalf of candidates and causes that impact us all.

AFSCME members across Florida are standing up and speaking out. We know we are stronger when we speak with a united voice so to make that as loud and as powerful as possible it takes all of us.

Big change comes from many small steps and one person can have a big impact. So be the change you want to see by taking part in AFSCME Florida actions and shape your future!

House leadership rammed HB 25 through the early committee process with little to no public input. Now they are racing to bring this terrible bill up for a vote as early as tomorrow.

The time to let our state representatives know that workers stand strongly opposed to this toxic anti-union bill is NOW. Call (855) 235-2469 and enter your zip code NOW to be connected with your local state representative.

Because of you, we’re one step closer to stopping a bill that will raise taxes on hardworking Americans to pay for massive tax cuts for the super wealthy and corporations.

Tell your representative NO:

  • To raising taxes on 87 million working families
  • To cuts to Medicare and 13 million people losing health insurance
  • To future cuts to Medicaid, Social Security and public education, and other public services

Tell them that everyone needs to pay their fair share.

This week, Congressional leaders unveiled a plan to cut taxes for corporations and the super wealthy on the backs of working families. This tax bill would actually raise taxes on some middle class families. While corporations will get huge new tax breaks and be rewarded for offshoring jobs, working people will no longer be able to deduct student loan interest payments, medical expenses, or state and local income taxes. Click here to sign the petition to Speaker Paul Ryan.

Young AFSCME activists across the country are rising to meet this challenge, to welcome labor’s future. 

Through our union’s Next Wave program, they are taking leadership roles in their unions and encouraging other young people to join.
