AFSCME leaders and members in California stand in solidarity with our Sisters and Brothers in Wisconsin and Ohio where collective bargaining, pensions, wages and jobs are threatened.
Wisconsin is the birthplace of AFSCME. We have a long and proud history in the state. In a matter of days, all we have built there over the past 75 years could be profoundly jeopardized. But more importantly, the very existence of public employee unionism is now on the line across the country.
This is short notice but we must do all we can to send a message across the country that when they take on one of us...they take on all of us! Please join us in supporting our fellow union members on Tuesday!
Events are being organized throughout the State - If you are interested in finding out what is being planned close to you, please contact Cheryl Brown at 510-436-2254 or email cheryl.brown - at - ca.afscme57.org.
