Take Action

Why take action?

  • 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 consider taking action with 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. We stand ready to do the same for you and your colleagues.

We'll keep you in the know about opportunities to take action on the issues that matter most to workers in California. 

You don't have to be a union member to join us for an action. When working people stand together, we win!

Registration begins on March 8. Questions about the 2018 Institute should be directed to Kineshia Cadogan at 510-642-1027 or [email protected].
