The world of work is changing—and changing fast. But one thing never seems to change: Too many employers don’t treat their employees fairly. Today, growing numbers of workers realize that if they want to gain respect and assure fairness, they need to join together to form a union.
Choosing AFSCME is the first step to success for many public service employees: AFSCME has the best record in the nation for helping workers secure representation rights by winning representation elections and settling first contracts.
AFSCME Local 2563 is a public services employee union representing Administrative and Technical employees of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. We are the local chapter of AFSCME Maryland. AFSCME International is the nation’s largest and fastest growing public services employees union with more than 1.6 million working and retired members.
Being an AFSCME member doesn’t only get you an advantage at the bargaining table – it also gets you access to discounts and benefits that can help make life a little easier.
AFSCME MEMBERSHIP PROGRAMS:
Join an AFSCME retiree chapter and unite with fellow retirees to protect and improve your retirement benefits. Our chapters lobby Congress, appeal to state legislators, even fight city hall in the effort to defend retirement security.
Politics is part of AFSCME's DNA. Federal election law and some state laws prohibit using dues for campaign contributions and other political activities. AFSCME PEOPLE enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.
The next generation of AFSCME leaders is one that considers iPods and social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter necessary items in labor’s modern tool chest. These men and women—35 and younger—view their union through new eyes, with fresh ideas. They deserve to be heard, encouraged and included.
