AFSCME Florida proudly represents the men and women who make Manatee County Public School happen every day. The bus drivers who make sure our children get to school and home safely every day, the custodians who ensure they have a safe and health place to learn, the food service workers who keep their minds and bodies healthy and the rest of their coworkers in AFSCME Local 1584 never quit on our community.

Today, members unite in strongly endorsing a yes vote on the March 20 measure to better fund Manatee County Public Schools

AFSCME Florida proudly represents the men and women who make many of the largest school districts in the state happen every day. They are involved in a wide range of essential support service activities such as student transportation, vehicle maintenance and repair, custodial and general maintenance, food service and materials management and distribution.

AFSCME Florida is proud to represent the hard-working men and women who make our country and our state the great melting pot of cultures, ideas and people that it has been and will continue to be.

During the mad dash that can be found during the last week of classes before the winter holiday break, AFSCME Local 1184 members had their own end-of-year sprint.

The members, who work for the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, turned a tentative agreement on wages and benefits into a ratification vote at 10 sites across the county in just six days. Members voted 97.6% in favor of the contract.

“We have had a great year of growth and success and this new agreement proves how the hard work really pays off,” said school bus driver and Local 1184 President Vicki Hall.

After almost three years of pushing to enforce her contract and get a paycheck that reflects the work she does, Joyce Harris is $8,805 closer to victory.

Harris loves working for Florida A&M University because she believes in the historically black university’s mission of providing access to a high-quality, affordable education to students who otherwise may never have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams of getting a college degree.
