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!

AFSCME fought to pass the American Rescue Plan and it is already making a difference in the pandemic recovery effort. The child tax credit provides families with the largest tax credit in history. It not only increases the tax credit for families to $3,000 per child between 6-17 years old at the end of 2021 and $3,600 per child under 6 years old, it also allows half to be paid to families in advance through a monthly check or direct deposit. For more information about this relief provided by the Biden administration’s American Rescue Plan, visit https://www.afscme.org/victory.

We know that our communities are safer, healthier and stronger when public service workers – people like our nurses, paramedics, 911 operators, teachers and sanitation workers – have the freedom to join a union and speak up together for their communities. But in 25 states they lack the freedom to negotiate for better pay, benefits and working conditions.

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!
