There have been several individuals asking about the jackets we sent order forms out for last spring, please rest assured we have NOT forgotten about them!!  We have been in contact with the supplier,  who is apparently dealing with the dreaded "supply chain issues" that all of us have experienced at one time or another over the last several years.  After conversation with the supplier, we are hoping, and feel pretty confident, that jackets should be arriving to those who ordered them by the end of October just in time for cold weather.

Thank you for your patience!!!

Every year on April 22 — Earth Day — communities across the globe celebrate our environment and commit to making it healthy for future generations.

This Earth Day, I’m thinking about the 50,000 AFSCME members who work in green jobs, protecting and caring for our planet. Whether they’re leading nature walks in our county or state parks, making public buildings more energy efficient and resilient to climate disasters, or making sure our waterways are clean, AFSCME members are at the heart of healthy communities.

On the 55th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., AFSCME releases the “I AM Story” podcast, which describes the working conditions faced by AFSCME sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1968 – the year of their historic strike – and connects that seminal event to today’s struggle for economic and racial justice. The podcast also spotlights the ties between the labor and civil rights movements.
