Local 2822 member Ali Fuhrman created a Labor History display entitled "Labor History: The Story of Working People and Collective Struggle" for the Oxboro Library. The display includes historical posters as well as materials related to Minnesota Labor History, African-American Unions, and Labor Stories for Children. Labor displays are a great way to educate the public about the history of the union movement and its potential for social transformation. If you are interested in creating a Labor History display at your Library and are looking for materials, send Ali an email. Or check out this great reading list provided by our union.
It’s election crunch time. We need volunteers to phone bank and door knock for AFSCME-endorsed candidates. Our No. 1 goal is to make sure our fellow union members (and their families) vote. Four-hour shifts are available from Nov. 1 through Election Day, Nov. 4. Sign up for a shift at an Action Center near you.
"Our very existence as union members depends on us re-electing Gov. Dayton this November," says Council 5 president Judy Wahlberg. "Our future is up to us. If it were not for our governor, we wouldn’t need bridges to Wisconsin – we would be Wisconsin.”
Read your contract and know your rights!
When you have a problem on the job, when you need information about your rights, when you want to know how to get involved, see a steward. Your steward provides leadership for the union in your work area.
Stewards receive training that helps them to address problems in the work place. They've become familiar with our contract by studying its provisions, answering questions from co- workers and investigating grievances.Read more >>>
