Take Action

Why Join?

  • Do you want to build a better and more secure economic future for you and your family?
  • Are you hurting from a lack of quality, affordable healthcare coverage?
  • Have you ever been unfairly disciplined by your supervisor or forced to accept a demotion, suspension or other punishment you didn’t deserve?

If you answered yes to any of these questions it’s time to join AFSCME. With more than 1.6 million active and retired members nationwide, AFSCME is the strongest and most respected public services union in the country.

We consistently fight for and secure the best wages, benefits and working conditions for our members. Since so much of public service workers’ rights, benefits and funding are impacted by the actions of elected officials, we maintain a strong presence in the corridors of government, fighting to protect our members and holding politicians accountable for their actions.  

Get in touch with AFSCME Local 1363 to learn more. All conversations are strictly confidential and you will not be pressured to move forward until you are ready. We are already standing and fighting with you coworkers and look forward to doing the same with you! 

Since beginning his crusade against public pensions, John Arnold has been relentless in his attacks on retirement security for working families. Often, he pays others to do his dirty work for him. For example, he funds biased researchfrom the Pew Research Center. He has also funded failed ballot measures to gut public pensions. Recently, Arnold has begun funding a group that is much more explicit in its mission to eliminate public pensions. Armed with a cunningly deceptive name, the so-called Retirement Security Initiative (RSI) has been one of the most active opponents of public pensions in recent years.

This spring, in the United States Supreme Court, our freedom to negotiate better pay, benefits and job security as union members was under attack.

The justices heard oral arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case brought by powerful corporations who want to rig the economy and destroy our ability to come together in a strong union. Click here to see what this case is all about and how it will impact you.

Send a message to the CEOs and their political cronies that you will never quit fighting for your union.

Win or lose in this case, we will continue to raise our voice and build power together. We will continue to stand up for one another and stand up to the wealthy special interests. Sign this petition and recommit to our union, our fight and our freedom.

The Working People’s Day of Action is about demanding an end to the rigged economy and defending our freedoms. On February 24, we will stand up for the freedom of working people to come together and fight for decent and equitable pay for our work, affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities and a secure future for all of us.

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.

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.

Connecting with AFSCME members who share the same job – and the same passion for it – has never been easier. With AFSCME Facebook groups, you can be a part of a conversation where dedicated professionals from across the country swap stories, celebrate victories and gear up for future battles.

By joining one (or more) of the AFSCME Facebook groups, you’ll be able to stay connected with other AFSCME members who know what it takes to get the job done and who never quit on their communities.
