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!

The disastrous GOP tax scam is facing an imminent vote in Congress. If it passes, the bill would result in immediate cuts of over $100 billion in health and human services, including $25 billion per year to Medicare.

We have to get loud and take action immediately to shut this bill down! There are several emergency events planned around California in December to fight back against this cruel, despicable bill. Find an action near you:

Over 350 of our brothers and sisters have lost everything in the fires that have ravaged Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Napa and Solano counties. The North Bay Labor Council had spent down its Disaster Relief Fund sending money to workers in hurricane impacted area. Little did they know they had their own disaster waiting right around the corner.

Please join the North Bay Labor Council and the Napa/Solano CLC in working to bring the fund back up. You can make a donation online or make a check out to: NBLC Members Disaster Relief Fund, 2525 Cleveland Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95403.
