DescriptionWe want to introduce you to the best union in America: AFSCME, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

Why is AFSCME the best? Because AFSCMEs over 1.4 million members public service and health care workers wont settle for anything less. Members have built the most active and powerful union in the Labor movement, and for one single purpose: to make sure that each and every member of AFSCME gets a fair deal from the boss and from the politicians.

AFSCME has the most aggressive staff and the most effective programs in the Labor movement today: outstanding resources for organizing, political action, and representing members in the workplace.

People in the workplace like what they see. In the biggest organizing drives of the past half century, workers have chosen AFSCME to represent them, and more than 100 independent associations have voted to affiliate. Today AFSCME continues to win nearly 90 percent of its representation elections.

What this all adds up to is job protection and good contracts and thats what a union is all about.
