Don’t Believe the Lies, AFSCME Remains Strong

Scam Alert

You could become the target of a scam to trick you into quitting your union. Don’t fall for it. »

Also, don’t let the Janus ruling get you down. Our union has been preparing for this adverse ruling and has been taking steps to ensure we grow stronger despite this setback. AFSCME President Lee Saunders explains in this op-ed in The Hill newspaper.

Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

“We will organize in our workplaces and our communities — more than 18,000 people have joined AFSCME through new organizing campaigns just since 2016. We will educate about issues affecting working people. We will fight for racial and economic justice. We will mobilize people to take collective action — and that includes encouraging them to vote for pro-worker candidates in the November elections.”
