2020 General Election - TUESDAY November 3, 2020

As people in public service, we know what a difference it makes when we elect leaders who have our backs.

This past Saturday, you might have been cooking a late breakfast, planning a fun weekend activity or taking some quiet time with your family.

It’s easy to say that the 2020 election is the most important of our lifetimes, but hearing this firsthand from AFSCME Retirees, many of whom have dedicated their lives to public service and making America a better place to live, shows the urgency to us all.
UPDATE 2/6 at 4:01PM - Right to Work for LESS legislation is dead in Senate Public Affairs. long live our UNION!

Two "right to work" bills will be heard in committee at the Roundhouse this week. Please attend hearings in House Labor and

This weekend, our friends on the House Appropriations and Finance Committee, voted to fund a raise for all State Employees.   The budget also includes additional money to support correction officers, probation and parole officers, social workers, and nurses. 

We are working hard with our allies in the house and senate to secure a raise for all state employees...READ about bills we're supporting, opposing, and working to amend.
All eyes on the Roundhouse as Sandoval Co. Commissioners keep promise to the 1% and vote on their freedom robbing ordinance
AFSCME will be working every single day with our friends the legislature to secure the 1.5% raise and try to see if we can address some of the issues around high vacancies and pay compaction within many state agencies. We will also fight against any attempts to outsource our members jobs and any corporate tax cuts that only benefit the wealthy. Please keep an eye for frequent updates as we move through the session and we will need each and everyone of us to make calls and send emails when we ask, it is critical to our success. Thank you all for your hard work and for dedicating your careers to public service. Happy New Year!
