AFSCME Council 18


In some districts, the election can come down to a handful of votes. You have the power to make sure our UNION VOTE MATTERS!

AFSCME members and retirees can make $12/hour volunteering to help elect pro-worker state legislators, a secretary of state, and president.

AFSCME members have the VOTE power needed to shift the NM House of Representatives back into the hands of working family friendly candidates. We all know what that can translate into: properly funded public services, fair raises, protected retirement, safe staffing levels, an education system that works for New Mexicans, and the end to Governor Martinez's free-pass to mismanage our taxpayer dollars.

Everyone is coming out to vote in this election, but we can't win without your help!


Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Belen, and Las Cruces Labor programs all run on the same schedule:

Phone Banking - Monday through Thursday: 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Door to Door Canvass - Saturdays meet at 9:30 for breakfast and hit the doors 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

AFSCME New Mexico Public Safety members helped to produce this documentary about the true spirit of law enforcement in America.


Local 601 President Adam Keck and Local 923 President Sammy Marquez assisted in production for the New Mexico filming, recruited community members to appear in the filming, and appear in the final production.

In Unity


We know that the road has been long, that change has come too slow, and that Income Support Division (ISD) staff are under unacceptable pressures to do their jobs in the face of systematic ambush.

AFSCME has send this letter to the USDA requesting they investigate the systemic failures that have gone unaddressed by the Martinez administration for too long.


CLICK here to READ about the April 28 Court case where New Mexico Center for Law and Poverty is requesting a Federal Monitor to oversee ISD. AFSCME members and ISD staff are under federal subpeona to reveal the truth of what is happening within the system.
