AFSCME’s Saunders: ‘Every single worker deserves a union. Congressional staffers are no different.’

AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement in support of the Congressional Workers Union:

“Every single worker deserves a union. Period. Congressional staffers are no different. They do the essential work of governance – connecting constituents to their representatives, driving legislation forward and ensuring that members of Congress are fighting for the interests of their communities back home. Our democracy cannot function without the work they do. AFSCME stands proudly with the Congressional Workers Union in their fight for recognition and fair treatment, and we call on members of Congress to do the same.”
