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! 

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.

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.
