Take Action

Stand together to shape the future of Florida

From exercising our voice at work to improve the lives of our coworkers to advocating on behalf of candidates and causes that impact us all.

AFSCME members across Florida are standing up and speaking out. We know we are stronger when we speak with a united voice so to make that as loud and as powerful as possible it takes all of us.

Big change comes from many small steps and one person can have a big impact. So be the change you want to see by taking part in AFSCME Florida actions and shape your future!

In 2018, we're ready to elect candidates that will stand up and fight for our values, and not rig the rules for the wealthy or sit idly buy as big corporations buy influence. Help make it happen!

AFSCME Florida and AFSCME locals across South Florida are partnering with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the South Florida AFL-CIO and the Workers Rise for Climate Justice Coalition to develop campaigns aiming to protect and improve jobs, livelihoods, and communities.

We need your help! Please take a brief 5-minute survey to help us understand your views on climate change, green jobs and our path forward.

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.

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.

AFSCME Retirees gave back to their communities through decades of hard work, but even in retirement they never quit. Strong pensions, Social Security and Medicare give us the freedom to enjoy our retirement. Public service retirees have the power to protect our retirement security. The first step is to join us!
