AFSCME Local 199

Miami-Dade County workers make AFSCME Local 199 strong

Although our job duties vary greatly, we’re all public servants. We keep our neighborhoods safe and functional. Nationally, AFSCME's 1.6 million members provide the vital services that make America happen. With members in hundreds of different occupations — from nurses to corrections officers, child care providers to sanitation workers — AFSCME advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and prosperity and opportunity for all working families.

AFSCME members from across north Florida overwhelmed the picnic area at the City of Jacksonville’s Fretwell Park on the west side of the city last weekend.

For years, Sheryll Brown made sure the students and staff at the University of North Florida had an efficient postal services unit. But when the university won the effort to outsource her department she made sure her contract was enforced, which led to a multi-year effort and tens of thousands of dollars in back pay.

When AFSCME wins a good contract, the first thing members and non-members usually look for is the pay raise the union was able to negotiate.

Senator Nelson has strongly opposed stripping away coverage for 32 million American, doubling the cost of premiums and wrecking our health care safety net. We thank him for his work and we know he will continue to be our voice in the Senate no matter what they bring up next.

We may be one big union, but that doesn’t mean we’re all the same. We’ve created custom newsletters so you can get the news and info you want. Choose below to sign up for the newsletters that are right for you! Pick all or one. (And don’t worry, you can change your subscriptions any time).
