Take Action

Public service workers deserve the freedom to join together in a union to collectively negotiate for fair pay and better working conditions. Tell your senators and members of Congress to cosponsor the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act.

Tell us how being a union member makes a difference in your life.

AFSCME is working to pass the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate act which ensures that all public service workers have the right to form and join strong unions. It’s no secret that when workers stand together, we win higher wages, better health care, benefits, safety standards and resources that allow us to meet the needs of the communities we serve.

We want to hear from you. Share your union difference story.

Some questions to help you get started:

  • How has being in a union improved your life?
  • How has being a union member kept you safe on the job?
  • How has having a voice on the job allowed you to advocate for your community?
  • Tell us about a time the union was there when you needed it most.
