Life is better in a union. Having a voice on the job means better pay, better health care, a more secure retirement and so much more. It means having a say in safety, staffing and other important issues that help AFSCME members do their jobs and keep America running.

Ever have a disagreement with a boss? Ever been unfairly disciplined on the job or even fired? Being in a union means you have the right to be heard – and it means your coworkers have your back.

Worried your workplace isn’t safe? Do you know you could serve the public better if you had more resources? AFSCME members have the power we need to fight for safe, effective workplaces. We make our communities stronger because our union is strong.

Union members win. We earn more money. We have access to better health care. We’re more likely to retire with a pension. We are better trained, have workplaces with higher safety standards and are more likely to have the resources we need to serve our communities.

With more than 10,000 AFSCME contracts covering our members, we know how to win raises, rights and respect at the bargaining table.
