AFSCME unveils website to strengthen Staff the Front Lines initiative

By AFSCME Staff ·

States, cities and towns across the country have yet to recover from the massive staffing shortages brought on by the pandemic in state and local governments. Watch a video of AFSCME President Lee Saunders to learn more about a new initiative our union is launching to help solve this crisis: Staff the Front Lines. 

“We take pride in strengthening our communities, but we need help,” Saunders says in the video, which can be found on a new Staff the Front Lines website our union launched this week. “During the pandemic, at a moment of crisis for the nation, public service workers answered the call and stood on the front lines. Now it’s time to staff the front lines.”
