WORKS: Summer 2016
Charting AFSCME’s Future
Commitment. Determination. Pride. This was the spirit of more than 4,000 delegates, alternates and guests who attended AFSCME’s 42nd International Convention this summer in Las Vegas. Charged with charting AFSCME’s future, members were eager to consider resolutions on a host of issues, participate in workshops to develop important skills, and march to Trump International Hotel in support of our sisters and brothers of the Culinary Workers Union.
Members left the Convention ready to return to their communities to apply what they learned and become involved in the November elections. Like Glenn Sago of Local 448 (Illinois Council 31), who alongside his union is fighting with anti-worker Gov. Bruce Rauner to secure a fair contract. Like Angie Hernandez of Local 2960 (Arizona), who is pumped to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton this fall. “It’s exciting to me to be a part of this election...She will do all she can for America,” said Hernandez.Download this publication as a PDF
