Local 2822: Hennepin County Clerical and Related

Greetings!

Our presswork continues we’ve had interviews on KFAI Community Radio show as well as AM 950. Members of AFSCME Local 34’s Anti-Discrimination Committee joined Minneapolis Public School workers to discuss our contract fight and Martin Luther King Day on Al McFarlane’s Insight News show. See also the Alley Newspaper Article and Fight Back News!

Our next round of bargaining is this coming Tuesday, January 18thBUT A DATE IS NOT A DEAL.

If we do not come to a tentative agreement next Tuesday, we will be hosting informational pickets across the County the following day: WEDNESDAY JANUARY 19TH!

Our main location will be at the South Minneapolis Human Service Hub on Lake Street and Hiawatha in Minneapolis from 10am-2pm but we encourage folks to come to any of the picket locations listed below. During the informational pickets, we will hold signs and hand out information to clients, patrons and the residents to get our story out to the people we serve!

Also: Continue to have your friends, family and neighbors call County Commissioners! See script below. Also please help us circulate this letter of support!

An informational Picket is NOT a Strike. It is 100% legal, on our own non-working time, such as breaks, lunch, PTO/Vacation time, flex time, SLWOP. Any worker of any union (or not in a union) can join us during a break!
