Join Council 94
The world of work is changing, and changing fast. But one thing never seems to change; Too many employers do not 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.
Labor unions are changing too – And AFSCME is leading that change. AFSCME members win concrete changes in their workplace, and they win greater dignity and respect on the job. By joining together to form an AFSCME local, new AFSCME members have won:
- A strong voice in the workplace
- Fair grievance procedures
- Wage increases
- Benefit improvements
- Better staffing levels
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.
Nationally AFSCME is 1.4 million strong with 8500 (7870 as of March 2008) members in Rhode Island. Thousands more are joining us every year. We are direct care workers, correctional officers, maintenance workers, school bus drivers, clerical workers, social workers, nurses, lawyers, doctors, probation officers and much, much more. Together, we have the strength to improve our jobs, our work and our lives.
