Georgia Veiga has been a proud member of AFSCME New Jersey Local 3440 for the last 17 years. She regularly seeks out opportunities to support companies that employ union workers. 

As the world marked the anniversary of the official start of the coronavirus pandemic Thursday, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law and offered words of hope to a weary nation.

Frontline workers across Florida are under attack. Senate Bill 78 and it's companion in the Florida House, HB 947, are designed to make it more difficult for Florida's public workers to join and remain in their Unions.
