AFSCME International threw down the challenge: It dared locals to sign up 50,000 new members before its July convention. Members in Minnesota and across the country responded – big time.

Do the Super Bowl the Union Way

The Feb. 1 Super Bowl has “union” stamped all over it – from the players on the field to the television crews to the stadium workers. You can run the table by making sure the food, snacks, and beverages at your Super Bowl party also are “union made.” See a list of what qualifies


 

Join Day on the Hill March 24

Hundreds of AFSCME members gather from around the state March 24 to make sure legislators move forward on transportation, reinvest in the work we do, and staff up for safe workplaces. Locals and individuals can register online. The online registration deadline is March 6.


 

U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez made a strong case for the value of labor unions following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2014 Union Membership Report.The report highlights that the median weekly earnings of nonunion workers ($763) were only 79 percent of earnings for workers who were union members ($970). If you do the math, it amounts to $10,000 more a year for union members.


 

The 2015 AFSCME Women’s Leadership Academy will be held from June to December of this year.

                                   Cutbacks at the University of Minnesota.

Facilities Management is currently looking at cutting the BSAC ( Building Systems Automation Center). This is one of the core departments that handles after hours emergencies, responsible for keeping research and the campus safe. Once again the University of Minnesota is looking to cut from the front line staff.

The forum is scheduled for Friday, February 6 from 1:30 to 3:30 in the Mississippi Room at Coffman Union.

 

Union members are happier with their lives than nonunion workers. Makes sense, right? Now comes a study that proves it.


 

The differences are clear. Some legislators agree with AFSMCE and our MoveMN partners in pursuing long-term, sustainable solutions for Minnesota transportation. Others just want to keep patching over the problem. In fact, they see it as an opportunity to raid education and health care, and to cut costs at MnDOT. In other words, they want to pay for it with our wages, benefits and jobs, and with the services we provide.


 

The legacy of Nellie Stone Johnson – Minnesota’s pioneering union, education, and civil rights leader – is about to reach a new level with the placement of a memorial in the State Capitol. Here's how you can help it happen.
