Across the nation, women are creating change for working families more than ever before. The Women’s Leadership Academy is ready to train more AFSCME women to be leaders of that change.

It’s not a secret that drug prices in the United States are rising much faster than inflation.

This is a notice calling for nominations for the AFSCME Local 2822 offices of President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, (2) Chief Stewards, (4) Members-at-Large, (1) Trustee, and delegates to the Minneapolis and St. Paul Regional Labor Federations on WEDNESDAY, February 6 at 6:30PM, Minneapolis Central Library, Doty Board Room.

As AFSCME members, we’re committed to serving the public and giving back. This holiday season, AFSCME Locals around the state lived our union values by taking part in a variety of community giving programs. It’s just one more way we’re walking our talk: helping our neighbors, lifting up working families and strengthening the communities where we work and live.

We had a busy year in 2822! Here are some of our workplace victories from 2018 and ongoing struggles for 2019. Don’t see your area on the list and want to organize? Shoot me or a steward or officer in your area an email. We’d love to get to know you and work with you!

Health and Human Services:

No one should feel like work isn’t safe. But we have been hearing more from workers that they don’t always feel safe at work and they don’t feel like their concerns are being listened to. Many 2822 jobs have the potential to cause long-term physical harm. Many of us interact directly with the public with few boundaries.

I was driving past a park in Eden Prairie last week when I did something that happens to me often, especially over the past couple months: I thought of Dawn Lindgren, an Excelsior library worker who passed away in October.
