December 2021

Check out this incredible list of wins AFSCME members worked hard to accomplish in 2021.

We have much to celebrate this year! Despite slim pro-worker majorities in the House and Senate, our collective voice has been of great consequence to guarantee that Congress and the Biden administration keep their promises to working families. Your efforts have already helped move Congress to pass the American Rescue Plan, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, confirm pro-worker members to the NLRB, and begin to rebalance the federal courts. In the words of President Biden, moving these bills and achieving greater economic security and support for workers and their families “is a big BIG DEAL”! 

  1. American Rescue Plan (ARP)

  2. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)

  3. Build Back Better Act Moves to the Senate

  4. Confirmation of Marty Walsh, Secretary of Labor

  5. Public Service Loan Forgiveness

  6. Social Security/GPO WEP update

  7. NLRB Confirmations

  8. Labor Lawyer Jennifer Sung Confirmed as a Federal Judge
