Solidarity Summer Celebration:
All members in good standing and your families are cordially invited to celebrate our contract, our solidarity within our local, our solidarity with our sister local 698, our solidarity within AFSCME Council 31 and AFSCME International, and our solidarity with other sister unions both locally and throughout the International community.
Our Celebration is at Meadowbrook Park’s Garden Pavilion Saturday August 6, from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM. Come for a minute, stay the whole time, or anywhere in between.
***Lunch will be provided.***

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
Right now, we are seeking individuals with good social and communication skills to join our Member Action Team. If you enjoy talking to people, this would be a perfect fit. You will be responsible for communicating updates to up to ten of your union siblings. You will keep them updated on union events and issues and report back their concerns so we can act on them.
