Coronavirus: Public Service Workers on The Front Lines

In Memoriam

We continue to stand on the front lines, doing everything in our power to contain the coronavirus pandemic. But the AFSCME family, like so many others, has suffered some profound losses, as this disease has claimed some of our very best. We mourn these proud AFSCME members, even as we celebrate their lives of service.
